Required enrolment information

  • Correct spelling of the candidate's full name
  • Candidate's date of birth
  • Subject or subject code of the examination ("Piano Grade 4" or "1234")

Scheduling the exam

Check the subject page for available exam periods. You need to include dates the student is unable to sit an exam. Consider any:

  • holidays
  • school camps
  • examinations or
  • family commitments

that might conflict with the exam period. You can also list scheduling preferences during the enrolment process such as:

  • Weekday or Saturday
  • "Please avoid Wednesday afternoons"
  • "Prefer the AMEB studios venue".

Have the student advise the dates they cannot sit their exam. Use the important dates checklist to ensure you have all the information you need.

Conflicts of interest

You must declare if the candidate was taught by an AMEB (NSW) examiner in the past three years. If so, the candidate cannot be examined by this examiner. Please note this with scheduling requests.

Non-English speaking students

Non-English speaking students may apply to the AMEB in writing to have an accredited  interpreter present at their exam. The  cost of the interpreter is the responsibility of the student.

Accredited interpreters may be contacted through  Multicultural NSW.

Please note that teachers and family members are not allowed to act as an interpreter.

Venue Code

If you wish to request the exam is held at a non-AMEB venue you will need to supply a venue code. AMEB (NSW) is unable to supply venue codes for non-AMEB venues. You should contact the venue owner for the venue code.
