TRINITY adapted music exams in the light of COVID 19

Trinity College have launched a new digital assessment alternative for Music and Drama. This includes all solo grades, from Initial to Grade 8, and performance diplomas (excluding FTCL) and allows you to gain a regulated grade or diploma qualification.

All candidates wishing to enter for Music assessments can now submit a video recording of their work. This enables you to take the performance component of your graded exam in your own setting, e.g. at home, at school or with your music teacher. You simply perform your exam pieces to camera in one continuous performance and upload the performance.

Trinity will use this video to calculate the final result and provide candidates with a regulated qualification, without the need for any face-to-face assessment.

STRUCTURE

In this adapted syllabus, you perform your three pieces or songs (or four songs for Singing Grades 6–8), just as you would in a normal graded exam.

The adaptation involves assessment of a filmed performance of pieces or songs only, and the marks for the technical work and supporting tests sections of your exam will be calculated based
on your performance marks.

MARK SCHEME

3 Pieces - 22 marks each
Technical work and supporting tests - 34 marks as a calculated percentage
TOTAL 100
