What doors can my AMEB results open?

Many secondary schools throughout NSW and the ACT offer full and half music scholarships to recruit talented students. Certain grades of AMEB achievements are often advertised as a prerequisite for scholarship application, along with an audition. Some scholarships might be offered for entry to Grade 7 of schooling and some for later years. Most scholarship applications are due in March each year, and applicants should list their AMEB written results and practical results for all instruments. Just search "Music Scholarship Secondary Schools" for scholarship opportunities available in your area.

Orchestras such as SYO and AYO also use AMEB practical grade achievements as a commonly understood standard of playing when assessing applications for entry to their ensembles. Visit the SYO and AYO websites for more information about their application process.

Even if you don't plan a future as a professional musician or actor, your years of dedication to AMEB exams can help you achieve your study goals. Some tertiary institutions offer bonus points to elite performers to help with application into tertiary courses. Just search "Elite performer entry scheme university" for more information about universities that may offer these adjustment factors that are considered in combination with your ATAR score.
