New Zealand entry information

Please note

  • Entries must include a current email address.
  • An entry form and payment must be received on or before the closing date.  
  • Incomplete entries will not be accepted. 
  • Correct Candidate details: It is vital the information provided is accurate and correct.  This information is used to enter your candidate for their exam.  Any spelling of names on the entry form is what will be produced on the candidate’s report and if they are successful in their exam, the certificate.
  • Candidate availability: Please notify us of all times your candidate is unavailable.  If we are limited to a small space of time it is unlikely we will be able to accommodate your requests.  Please keep your expectations realistic.
  • Travel: If you have entered for an exam and intend to travel at any time around our exam sessions, please check session dates with your Local Representative before finalising your travel plans.
  • We are not able to guarantee any examination venue.
  • Warming up at the venue: Trinity endeavours to provide space for candidates to warmup, but this may not always be possible.  Please note that if space is provided this is not for a practice session or further lesson, but to allow candidates to prepare and warm up instruments for their exams.
  • Please note: No examination information will be released to anyone other than the Applicant. This is in line with Trinity’s privacy and confidentiality regulations.
