In-person Exams Back from 01 April 2021

We are proud to have created a world class online exam system, using the very latest technology. But we know how important it is for musicians to perform face-to-face. So, for those who can, in-person exams will be scheduled at some exam centres from the start of April. Find out when and where from your local representative or contact us.

Your safety and that of everyone who works in our exam centres is our number one priority. That’s why we’ve made our centres as Covid-secure as possible. You will notice some changes in the way things are done when you next visit an LCME exam centre.  Help keep everyone safe and follow the guidelines set out by the Government. We look forward to seeing you.

More Flexibility For You.

We know not everyone can get to an exam in person so we’ve created flexible digital exam options, available throughout the year. There are no entry deadlines and they can be taken anywhere in the world online (live or recorded). You can take your LCME exam online even if there are no in-person exams in your area - find out more
