Music Theory results – update 6 April

Unfortunately, results for the Music Theory exams taken in March in the regions listed below in Spain will be delayed. This is because the COVID-19 situation has meant that offices and premises worldwide are less accessible, including ABRSM’s offices in London.  At the moment we do not know when we will be able to release these results, and we are sorry that this is disappointing news. We are doing everything we can to keep the process moving and to release results as soon as we can.

States affected
Aragon and Cataluna
