An MTB exam can either be conducted by a registered teacher/centre or the candidate can conduct the exam themselves without a teacher/centre present. On entry you will be asked to confirm one of these two options.
The easiest way to conduct and record an MTB exam is with our app, which allows you to record an exam in audio or video, photograph the music and submit the exam with just a phone or tablet. To learn more about the app click here.
You can also record the exam through any other means and submit the recording through the website.
An exam can be conducted by a teacher/centre either in person or remotely via webcam. The exam can be recorded and submitted on our app by either the teacher or candidate/candidate’s guardian. It is important that the device recording the exam using our app is always in the room with the candidate playing to ensure the quality of the recording. Therefore if the teacher is conducting the exam remotely the candidate/candidate’s guardian must record the exam.
A printed or digital copy of the front cover is required for the exam. The teacher and candidate/candidate’s guardian should verbally read out and agree the verification statement at the end of the exam.
The exam can be taken at any time within a year of entry. (You may decide to conduct the exam during the pupil’s normal lesson time).
