Need-to-knows | Preparing for successful music and drama digital grades & diplomas

Trinity's digital grades and diplomas offer a flexible and convenient option for music and drama candidates to take online exams that are regulated and recognised in the same way as Trinity's face-to-face exams. Online exams may be a new or unfamiliar mode of assessment for your students and some candidates may have never filmed their work for a digital exam. So to support you we have designed helpful guides and resources filled with tips, advice and insights to help you understand, plan, prepare and submit performances to ensure the very best outcome. Whether you are completely new to the digital exam process or already successfully running digital exams, the information, advice and guidance will ensure you get the best result from your digital grade journey.
