The Level 5-8 Theory requirements are now available for study as a digital course with online exam, providing a complete digital learning experience. Students working in the digital environment are offered unlimited practice opportunities which provides them with an opportunity to become familiar with both the content and question types before attempting either the unit tests or final examination.
The course includes eight graded unit tests worth a total of 40% of the overall mark and one final exam worth 60% of the overall mark. All unit tests and the final exam are available on demand. They can be attempted by students at any time, and in any place that has a reliable internet connection but unit tests must be completed in sequence prior to the final exam. For the final exam, it is strongly recommended:
- That the online final exam be proctored in case the exam is ever submitted for secondary school credit and due to shifting guidelines;
- That students confirm with their school that a proctored online exam will be accepted for secondary school credit.
Note that to ensure the academic integrity of the exam, the Proctor SHOULD NOT be a relative (e.g. mother, father, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, cousin, etc) NOR should the Proctor be the personal music teacher of the exam candidate.
