Digital exams

The LCME digital music examination service allows you to arrange exams throughout the year - not just when there are enough candidates. With restrictions on face-to-face exams as a result of COVID-19, your candidates now have the option of taking a recorded or online exam, at any level from anywhere in the world, at any time.

Let us come to you

It is not always practical for teachers to bring groups of children to public exam centres and often the public exam dates do not suit schools or music/drama groups. If you become an exam centre you will have full control of when and where you hold exams. You will have an account with our online system allowing you to enter candidates, request dates, timetable your exam days and view your candidates’ results as soon as they are published. You will have the full support of the LCME team who are on-hand to help with any queries you may have.

Benefits of holding your own exam session

  • Exams can be held on your premises
  • Flexible choice of dates (see below)
  • Access to online tools to help plan and timetable
  • Results are always released promptly
  • Certificates posted directly to you

UK & Ireland

Exams held in private centres in the UK & Ireland must meet the minimum requirement of five hours of examining. Your exam session will not be limited to the public sessions and can be held at any time - we only ask that you apply six weeks prior to your chosen exam date. However if your chosen date is within the public exam sessions we ask you to adhere to the closing dates.


The minimum entry numbers required for overseas centre vary by region. If you are based overseas and you are interested in holding an exam session please get in touch for country specific information.
