Practical Session 1 Update - Faroe Islands

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 are cancelling the Session 1 Practical exams scheduled for 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 internationally and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

Working with the Music Education Council

The Music Education Council (MEC) brings together organisations and institutions in the UK involved in music education and music education training, creating opportunities for the exchange of information and the promotion of joint or connected activities.

As the umbrella body for music education organisations in the UK and the country's representative body for the International Society for Music Education (ISME) and other international organisations, MEC is uniquely placed to represent the sector. ABRSM is represented as part of the MEC Forum, which oversees and coordinates the work of the MEC Special Interest Groups and the Task and Finish Groups. Lincoln Abbotts, ABRSM's Executive Director: Strategic development, acts as a trustee.
