Exams and Qualifications

Do you want recognition for your abilities? If so, you can enter for examinations in all aspects of Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre. Many of these examinations are included in the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) and being regulated, have a government seal of approval and an external value.

For instance, did you know that a Grade 4  corresponds to GCSE Level and that a Grade 6 equates to AS/A Level?

Regulated exams at Grade 6 and above offer UCAS points for university entrance and can be a valuable complement to your school/college subjects. Ask us for more details about this.

+ London College of Music (L.C.M)
