  4. What facilities/exams conditions should I provide for the exam day?
  • A firm writing table (suggested 5ft x 2ft)
  • A comfortable chair of suitable height with a cushion and one extra chair
  • Adequate lighting, heating, and ventilation: teachers are responsible for the health and safety of their exam candidates, examiner, and pianists/music operator during examinations. The exam room must be kept at a suitable temperature, with adequate ventilation as required and access to drinking water at all times. The optimal temperature for a dance studio is recommended to be 65-75° Fahrenheit (18-24° Celsius). Please note that if an examiner feels that the safety of those involved in the session is at risk due to the venue conditions, they may stop the exam session.
  • Drinking or mineral water
  • Soap and towel in the washroom
  • Music player connection, CD player, and CDs (if required). CDs should be of good quality with adequate volume
  • Mirrors should be covered
  • Please ensure that any windows/doors which allow outside observation of the candidates’ exam room are covered
  • Formal exam conditions must be observed at all times – please ensure no one enters the room whilst the exams are taking place (only the examiner, candidates and pianist/music operator should be present).

Please note:

  • The changing room for candidates must be separate from the examination room and not a screened-off partition
  • In all breaks, including lunch, the examiner should be left alone and uninterrupted
  • For class assessments, every child must have their number pinned to their uniform.
