Trinity’s digital submission process allows you to record and submit your performance at a time and place of your choosing. The person who books the exam can choose to also handle the submission, or they can nominate the candidate (if 18 or above) or a parent/guardian to do so themselves. Following the marking, the examination report will be sent directly to the submitter and the candidate.
Our new submission portal offers better functionality and user experience to our candidates and teachers.
If you are named as the submitter on the booking form, you will receive a request to log in to the submission platform and upload the exam. If you do not already have an account in the platform, you will first receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with a username and temporary password. Once you have signed in to the platform and created a new password, you can use these details for any future submissions.
You now have 14 days to complete the submission. This means filling out the online form, and uploading the performance video together with any supporting documentation. Please refer to the relevant digital exam syllabus for information about the documentation you need to provide as well as how to name the video file.
When you have submitted the exam, you will receive email confirmation. The exam will now be marked by a Trinity examiner, and the feedback and mark will be sent by email to you as the submitter, and to the candidate (if this is a different email address).
Your video should be saved as an mp4 or mov file. To ensure that the performance video uploads smoothly and that the examiner can view it correctly, we recommend that your video file size does not exceed 1GB. If your video is larger than that, please consider reducing it by using a video compressor app from your device’s application store.
Before submitting, also check that your video follows the filming guidance [ music | drama ] and that picture and sound plays correctly from beginning to end.
Remember that you may not re-use a performance video for any subsequent exam entries.
We strongly advise candidates not to share their performance videos online. Pieces in the Music and the Drama and Performance syllabuses are under copyright, and many of those rights are not owned by Trinity. Trinity only has the required permissions for usage of these pieces in TCL Press published books and in relation to Trinity exams. As such, if you would like to share your videos online, you should apply to the copyright owner(s) to obtain synchronisation licences as Trinity does not usually have the right to grant the relevant permissions. Any candidate sharing performances of copyrighted material will be personally liable for any breach of copyright law.
