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.

Instruments

At all grades, candidates have the option of playing one tune on any alternative member of the saxophone family.
