Below you can find some information about London Trinity College musical examinations – practical, theory and Diploma
Trinity College London practical graded exams are numbered from Initial to 8 in increasing order of difficulty.
Candidates perform three (or sometimes four) pieces, and technical work featuring scales and arpeggios and exercises. They also choose two supporting tests from a selection including sight reading, aural, musical knowledge and improvising. Cayman Music School offers free theory lessons for students preparing for exams.
Theory graded written exams are numbered from 1 to 8. Having completed the grades, the student should be well equipped to apply the tools of music to take advantage of a wide variety of further and higher educational and creative opportunities, including progression to Trinity’s written diplomas. There are three Diploma levels: ATCL (equals Associate Degree), LTCL (Bachelor’s Degree) and FTCL (Master’s Degree).
Trinity Grade music exams (including Rock & Pop exams) are eligible for United Kingdom Universities’ and Colleges’ Admissions Service (UCAS) points within the UCAS tariff system, which is open to any student applying for a course of study at a UK university or other higher education institution. These exams will contribute towards a student’s ‘score’ of UCAS points when they apply for entry to higher education. Various arrangements are in place with government educational authorities worldwide (see below the Qualification framework in Cayman Islands).
