Performance Grades

Performance Grades are available at Grades 1 to 8 for a wide range of instrumental and singing subjects, plus Initial Grade for Piano and Bowed Strings. This digital exam is assessed from a video recording and is all about performance.

Changes from 1 August 2022

We’re introducing a new way to book and submit digital Performance Grades and ARSMs. Monthly booking periods and exam sessions are being replaced with an on-demand service that gives more flexibility and choice. There is no booking period in July and the new on-demand service will be available in August. Find out more.

Recorded accompaniment is now a permanent option alongside live accompaniment for Performance Grades only. Find out more.

ABRSM Examiner, Sarah Oliver, provides recording guidance and explains how to upload your recording and submit your exam entry.
