Latest exam updates

Practical Session 2 Update

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

Provided travel and COVID restrictions remain lifted, we will open a booking period from 28 September – 12 October with exams to be held November – December. We will continue to keep this under review as our ability to accept bookings remains conditional on the restrictions continuing to be lifted. An update to Applicants will be announced as soon as we can and our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course. We are looking forward to providing candidates with exams again and thank you for your loyalty and support at this difficult time.

  • A unique backing track for every scale.

Use the Test feature for a quick selection of scales from your grade. Perfect for warming up or for preparing for your exam.

You’ll also get access to a simple Practice Meter, so you can see which scales you need to focus on and track your progress as you practise.
