Results

Your Digital Grade opens doors to the worlds of education and industry in the same way your face-to-face Grade exam does. They carry the same Ofqual regulatory status, including UCAS points, and are underpinned by the same academic rigour you would expect from any Trinity College London qualification.

Your exam will be marked by one of our expert Music Examiners. They will watch your video, refer to your supporting documentation, and award your marks and comments.

Once you have submitted your exam, you can expect the marking to take up to 2 weeks although this is often much quicker. You will receive an email to let you know that your exam has been marked, at which point you may log back into your account to read the feedback from the examiner and see your provisional result.

It takes about a week for your provisional result to be verified as final, and your certificate will follow within 2 weeks.
