The Music Teachers’ Board is a recognised awarding body and regulated by Ofqual – (Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation in England) and our graded awards in music performance appear on Ofqual’s register of approved qualifications.

Recognition by Ofqual is a mark of quality – it shows that as a board we meet their rules and requirements and are able to combine expertise in assessment with effective operational delivery. In turn, this provides assurance that the learners who have taken our Ofqual regulated qualifications have the required level of knowledge and skills in the relevant subject area.



MTB Grades 6-8 are eligible for UCAS points which are equivalent in value to the other Ofqual regulated music boards.

These points are available for candidates who have taken our qualifications since March 1st 2019 and can be used by students applying through UCAS from 2020 onwards.*


*As the next annual update by UCAS to further education establishments will take place in May 2020 we cannot guarantee that these points will be accepted for students applying to universities in 2019 for places in 2020, please check with the prospective education establishment.
