Metro - First Session
Metro - First Session 06 (Schools and External Venues only, all grades)

For 2021, Session 06 will only be available for Metropolitan grade candidates who enrol through schools or expect to be examined at suitable and approved external venues. Enrollers wishing to enrol for their face-to-face exams at external venues must obtain permission from the venue owner, who will provide you with their venue code. A venue code is required for enrolments in Session 06. AMEB (NSW) can only provide venue codes to venue owners. More information about becoming an external venue.

Metro - First Session 66 (AMEB venues, Grade 8, Certificate and Diploma)

We understand that many enrollers would still like their candidates to sit for a face-to-face comprehensive exam if possible in 2021. However, due to health and safety requirements and the social distancing limitations around COVID-19, this will only be possible for a small fraction of the candidates who usually attend the Clarence Street and Sydney Conservatorium exam venues in Sydney this year.

These exams will take place in a newly-created Session 66, which will only be available for Grade 8, Certificate and Diploma candidates at our Sydney Venues.

  • 27 January 2021 – Enrolments open via AMEB Connect

Exam sessions later in the year
