Practical Session 2 Update - South Korea

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we are working hard on solutions to ensure learners can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity.

However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be cancelling Session 2 Practical exams scheduled for October - November. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and we will continue to monitor the situation. Thank you for your loyalty and support while these restrictions remain in place.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades https://gb.abrsm.org/en/performancegrades/ internationally and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

Jazz Performance Assessment is an opportunity for musicians of any age or level to have their prepared work assessed by a musician with broad jazz experience, without the pressure normally associated with public performance or exams.

How it works

A free choice of repertoire – lasting no more than 15 minutes and broadly corresponding to the tunes included in ABRSM’s Jazz syllabus – should be offered, and performers will need to provide their own accompaniment where appropriate. Constructive comments on the performance are written by the examiner on the certificate that each candidate receives at the end of the assessment.
