Coronavirus Information

ABRSM has currently suspended F2F exams at Public Centres and unfortunately RMT is not currently able to run safely, within Covid 19 guidelines, as a Private Centre.  The following links may be of interest to those wishing to sit an exam, and we are happy to liaise with RMT Associate Teachers should you require additional information as to the options available for your child.

When applying for Remotely Assessed Grades, please note that RMT does not have access to individual candidate numbers.  If you have not sat an exam before, you will not have a candidate number.  If you have previously sat an exam, your candidate number can be found on your mark sheet which was sent with your certificate.
