Classical & Jazz

In response to the current situation with regard to Covid-19, calculated assessment is now available for:

•    Classical and Jazz graded exams from Initial to Grade 8

Adapted arrangements are available for the following exams:

•    Music Performance Diplomas ATCL and LTCL

Calculated assessments involve two steps. Adapted assessments will be marked wholly on the basis of your uploaded performance. Please see the syllabuses for further information.

Step 1
A filmed performance of your pieces, uploaded to our portal and marked remotely by an examiner. You will receive feedback and marks on each piece using the same assessment criteria as for a graded music exam or performance diploma.

Step 2 (calculated assessments only)
Trinity will calculate your overall examination result, based on the marks given for your pieces. You will then be awarded your regulated qualification. For further information about how this is calculated please visit the results calculation page.
