AMEB (NSW) divides:

  • Metro Music - Second Session and
  • Metro Speech & Drama - Second Session

into different periods. This is due to the large number of exams requested during this time.

The candidate's exam period is determined by the enrolling person’s residential postcode.

This is the case even if a private studio is being used that is in a different postcode. Enrollers may not use post office boxes as their residential address.

The original enrolment postcode will apply if:

  • the enrolling person changes their address or
  • the candidate changes teacher

between the time of enrolment and the examination date.

Enrollers may only have one enroller number. AMEB (NSW) may ask for proof of address and/or identity to maintain accurate postcode records.

It is the enrollers responsibility to ensure their address is accurate at the time of their students' exams. A fee applies for the re-issue of certificates.
