Trinity College London announced the launch of a new Digital Grades and Diploma platform that allows students to take their music and drama exams remotely from November 2020.
The Digital Grades and Diploma exams platform allows candidates to submit video recordings of their work. Candidates are required to upload their work as one continuous video performance, which is assessed by one of Trinity’s Examiners.
In Music Graded Exams, candidates are required to upload a performance of their pieces and technical work; the assessment of the supporting tests or session skills will not be part of the submission. Instead, examiners will be applying an additional set of performance criteria that assesses the key musical skills underpinning the supporting tests requirements within the context of the whole recital. In Music Performance Diplomas, the exam requirements are unchanged. In Drama Graded Exams and Performance Diplomas, adaptations will be made to the supporting tests.
At this time the Digital Grades and Diplomas are available for solo grades only; we are working on a solution for Drama Group and Pair exams that will be available in the next release. More details for Communication Skills, and the adaptations to all of the syllabuses, will be made available on our website shortly.
Trinity’s new Digital Grades and Diploma exams are available for all the Classical and Jazz syllabuses. They enable candidates to record their pieces and technical work at a place and time of their choice and then submit the video recording via our online platform to be assessed by our expert examiners. The exams have the same academic rigour as our face-to-face exams, and candidates gain full recognition for their achievements, with the same certificate awarded as for the face-to-face exams. There is no closing date for these entries, and the turn-around time is very quick. After the entry and payment have been received, the candidate will have approximately 3 weeks within which to upload their recording of the exam and their supporting documents.
PLEASE NOTE – candidates should only enter for these digital exams through their local representative/Centre, when they are ready to record their exam.
