Examination updates from June Smith:

  • If there is only one examiner you must add 15 minutes to the exam session except for Grades III and Grades IV
  • Sponsor Letter is to be handed in for teacher's exams Elementary, Intermediate, Advanced and Diploma. 
    The sponsor letter is a very simple letter stating that the coach is willing to sponsor the candidate. If the coach feels it is necessary to give any more information about the candidate (limitations or injuries) that can be included in the sponsor letter.
  • ALL teachers need to bring a resume with them at the time of the exam.
