Performance Certificate

(Premiere to Grade 8)

At all grades you can submit videos for performance certificates.

Candidates will be marked by a Rockschool examiner in exactly the same way that they would be in a face to face exam.

Candidates can choose to play all five pieces from the Rockschool Graded Book repertoire, or choose to record up to three Free Choice Pieces from the following sources:

  • Songs in the public domain, including hits from the charts. For example, a song by their favourite band or artist
  • Pieces from other exam boards
  • Their own composition
  • Vocal pieces from the Wider Repertoire list.

Sheet music must be provided for all Free Choice Pieces. Backing tracks are optional.

Graded Certificate

(Debut to Grade 8)

Graded Certificates are now a permanent addition to Rockschool exam offerings.  They are a slightly-adapted version of the face to face Grade Exam Рdesigned for video exams.

Graded Certificates cover grades Debut to 8 and require the candidates to play three pieces (up to two free choice pieces) and ALL of the technical exercises published in the Rockschool Grade books. These should be recorded by the candidate as a continuous take.

Please read the full list of technical work requirements in the pdfs below.
