FACE TO FACE AND DIGITAL EXAMS 2022

We are now planning to restart face-to-face practical examinations in private centres in the Republic of Ireland from the 1st September 2021. Booking for these exams can be made now. These plans are of course subject to any further government guidance.
Face-to-face exam bookings and Arts Award moderations will be subject to the usual advance booking period periods. All private exam centres will need to ensure they are fully compliant with all national and local government guidance in the context of COVID-19 to be able to host an exam session. Trinity has also produced a set of considerations that private centres will need to factor in when preparing their exam centres. This has been circulated to centre representatives and is also available on request from your Trinity contact.
Don’t forget, we continue to support teachers, candidates and schools across all our subjects through our new Digital Grades and Diplomas exams for music, Rock & Pop and drama. These stand alongside face-to-face assessment as an academically robust and simple-to-use option, and we encourage teachers, candidates and schools working across all of our arts subjects to consider a digital assessment if appropriate and convenient. This option is available to book at any point during the year. For more information see Digital Grades and Diplomas.

Can I request a specific date?

You cannot request a specific date, however, if there are any dates within the advertised week that you or your candidate cannot attend please state this in section C on the entry form. These date exemptions cannot be guaranteed but we will do our best to work around your requests.

What if I have missed the deadline?

If you have missed the deadline for your chosen exam session it may be possible to make a late entry. Anyone wishing to make a late entry must contact us immediately, we will advise on whether it will be possible and the cost involved.

  • For late entries received between 20 and 14 days before the exam date: Surcharge of +100% of the entry fee applies.

When will I receive the specific time and date of my exam?

Appointment forms detail the time and date of your exam, they are sent out 3 weeks prior to the exam date. Appointment forms are posted to the applicant, which is usually the music school or teacher. If you have not received your appointment form within 3 weeks of the exam session beginning you should contact us immediately.

I can’t make the date/time I have been given, can I change it?

We cannot guarantee that we will be able to change your appointment time. If you are unable to make the exam appointment you have been allocated please contact us as soon as possible to see if another appointment is possible. Please be aware that you are relying on a cancellation from another candidate in order to change your appointment time.

What happens if I am ill on the day of my exam?

Please contact your us in the first instance of the situation. We may be able to offer an examination time on another day.

If this is not possible then you can apply for a re-entry voucher by submitting a medical note together with the appointment slip within 30 days of the examination. This should be sent directly to Trinity College London, for attention of Operations (Music). The medical note should provide evidence that a candidate is not in a fit state to take their examination, but need not be a formal medical certificate. Photocopies of original documents are acceptable.

What provision is available for candidates with special educational needs?

Trinity College London is committed to creating an inclusive environment where candidates with special educational needs are able to demonstrate their skills and feel welcomed. Candidates who wish to make the examiner aware of their condition, or who require modified tests in a preferred format, must complete a special needs request form and include it with their entry, along with appropriate medical evidence. For further information please see Music special needs.
