Wonder if Trinity will do the same. I'd got 2 students for March 27th and have decided to stop teaching for now so would be rather relieved

Thanks for posting this. They haven't changed their website yet.

Gutted for my student who won't get to do it. They've worked so hard :(

I felt that coming. Luckily my daughter, one of my students and I myself (on cello!) got ours done on Saturday. My other two students are due to do theirs first thing tomorrow.

The Boy injured his hand just days before his grade 8 cello. His kind teacher said it would just mean that he would get an even better mark, and although it was disappointing at the time, his teacher handled it well and did some new work with him.

Sorry, for some reason that link isn’t working, but if you look on the ABRSM FaceBook page there is post announcing this, and a link to the announcement on their website.

Trinity are still running exams in our area on Monday if that helps anyone. Numbers are being kept low in the venue and no-one is allowed in with symptoms but will be allowed a free retake

Just one grade cancelled (the other was a theory candidate who did their exam some while back), and I had already decided not to enter anyone in the summer session.
Still disappointed for the one grade 5 flautist who lost their exam :(

My last two are cancelled then. Why are they posting this on social media rather than here or on the main web page? Madness.
