Exams/Awards 2017

Entries for the RAD assessments have closed.

The assessments will take place on the 2nd and 3rd of November at our studios.   Further information will be available shortly.

We highly recommend that the students participate in an assessment as it gives them:

  • goals to work towards,
  • the experience of presenting their work to a third party, and
  • the chance to have their skills formally recognised.

We are offering two different types of RAD assessment, as follows:

  • The Class Award is led by the teacher and assessed by the examiner. This assessment gives a broad indication of the student’s standard.  Students receive an assessment report.
  • The Exam is led and assessed by the examiner, the teacher is not present. Students receive a detailed assessment report with marks out of 100 and a grade.

Students receive a medal and certificate for both types of assessment as long as they attain the required standard.

All students entering a Class Award or Exam must attend all syllabus classes during the term and grade 1 students must attend 2 syllabus classes per week in term 3.

In addition we will have Exam week during the second week of the October school holidays (9th to 13th Oct).   This is compulsory for students entered for either the class award or exam.

These classes will be held daily from Monday to Friday in most cases and will range in length from 30 minutes to an hour and a quarter depending on the level the student is studying. There will be an additional charge for these extra classes during the holidays as shown below.

The costs (incl gst) are as follows:
