Practical Update – South Africa

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we are working hard on solutions to ensure learners can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity.

However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be cancelling Practical exams for the remainder of the year. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and we will continue to monitor the situation. Thank you for your loyalty and support while these restrictions remain in place.

Following this decision we will process 100% refunds for all Practical exam bookings. Our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades internationally and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA)

The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA) was established by Government Ordinance in 1984 and is a leading tertiary institution in performing arts in Asia.

It provides professional undergraduate education and practice-based postgraduate studies in Dance, Drama, Film and Television, Music, Theatre and Entertainment Arts, and Chinese Traditional Theatre. Its education philosophy reflects the cultural diversity of Hong Kong with emphasis on Chinese and Western traditions, and interdisciplinary learning.

In 2012 we launched a new scholarship for students attending the Academy’s School of Music. The first scholarship was awarded to seventeen-year-old Andy Chung Hok-Chun, who began his undergraduate studies at the Academy's School of Music at the beginning of September and is receiving funding via the ABRSM scholarship for all four years of the course.
