New Digital exams

LCME has launched its unique digital exam programme for all music and performance subjects, so candidates at any level, from grade one to diploma, now have the option of taking a recorded or online exam. Your candidates can now take their LCME exams from anywhere in the world, at any time, in the comfort of their own surroundings.

Our partnership with you

We see our centre representatives as our partners. You are at the very heart of the examinations service and LCME want to work with you so that you can continue arranging examinations for your candidates, now and in the future.

This service has been designed to support you and together we will improve our examination provision. Many of your responsibilities will remain the same. We hope, however, that the systems and added flexibility will empower you to drive efficiencies and savings, making your business stronger than ever.
