Based in London, England, ABRSM is a consortium of four music schools. ABRSM holds exams in 96 countries every year. Experience shows that the ABRSM program of graded exams works as a highly motivational tool which helps students progress two to three times faster than normal.
It benefits students by offering them a clear and structured framework against which they can measure their progress. In addition, it is a great aid to teachers in the structuring of their teaching program and in the provision of objective assessments on their students.
Grades 6 to 8 and diploma exams earn points for university entrance in the United Kingdom and some colleges and universities in the U.S.
