I sat my exam in December, and result arrived in March - 12 or 13 weeks. Have to allow a week or so for Christmas and New Year.
How long do diploma results really take to arrive?

Anyone else taken diploma in Summer 2019? Let us know when you get results, the wait is killing me!!

Has anyone here taken an ARSM? For ARSM, do the results arrive alongside the graded exams (G1-G8), or do they take longer like the higher level diplomas (DipABRSM and up)?

My ATCL results took almost exactly 1 calendar month. Exam on 28 July, mark sheet arrived 31 August.
Sorry should have said DipABRSM. Trinity must be more on the ball!

Finally arrived on the 3rd Oct - 2 1/2 months after the exam. Passed with 74 woohoo!

Thanks so much everyone Didn't know whether I had done something wrong and would fail, so a very nervous wait. Going straight onto LRSM and will definitely get a few lessons to make the process easier!!

Thanks all for the useful comments in this thread. I've been waiting anxiously for FRSM piano performance diploma results (delighted to have passed with distinction!) and had been waiting for SO long that I'd started to fear the worst.
For what it's worth, this has been my experience of the wait times for each of my ABRSM diplomas. I hope that my experience gives others some idea of what to expect.
dipABRSM - taken on 1/7/2015 - Results posted on 19/8/2015 - Wait time 7 weeks
LRSM - taken on 23/7/2016 - Results posted on 5/9/2016 - Wait time about 6 weeks
FRSM - taken on 23/7/2019 - Results posted on 14/10/2019 - Wait time almost 12 weeks
First exam was taken in Glasgow and the other two were taken in Oxford. I guess I don't have enough experience to say for sure what factors determine how long they will take, but there clearly is a very wide range of possible wait times!
