Enter candidates for Trinity’s music exams

If you would like to prepare and enter candidates for Trinity’s graded music exams, there are three options available to you:

1) Register with us as a private centre.

This is a good option if you would like to host exams at your venue or organisation and have enough candidates to meet our minimum fee (currently £826/€1500). You will have control of the timetable, date and running of your exam session. There is no charge to become a centre with us.

Step 1 - Read the eligibility criteria and venue requirements here to check that your organisation is eligible to provide Trinity assessments. We recommend looking at the detailed guidance on the set up of an exam room available for Classical & Jazz and Rock & Pop.

Step 2 - Complete the application form on our centre registration page (using our guidance and checklist where needed).

Step 3 - Our team will process your application. This normally takes up to 4 weeks and during this time you may be required to provide further information. You will be asked to sign an agreement once your application is approved.

Please note that pictures of the proposed exam room(s) will be requested by the centre application team. If applying for Classical & Jazz graded exams please remember to include a picture of the piano at your exam centre. For Rock & Pop exams a picture of the drum kit will be required.
