Performance-Only Diploma (ARSM)

This meaningful goal provides the opportunity to demonstrate your performance skills and to have your level of achievement recognized. It gives purpose and direction to post-Grade 8 learners of any age and can also help bridge the gap between Grade 8 and DipABRSM. ARSM is all about the performance. There are no written or spoken elements and no scales, sight-reading or aural tests. If you are successful, you will receive a certificate and can add letters (ARSM) after your name.
