For a full list of AMEB Qld policies and procedures, please refer to pages 84–96 of the 2020 enrollers' handbook (PDF, 7MB).

Acceptance of enrolments

AMEB Qld accepts enrolments on the understanding that teachers, private entrants, candidates and parents have read and agree to:

  • AMEB Qld policies and procedures
  • accept that assessments shall be made strictly in accordance with the syllabus requirements, objectives and regulations prescribed in the current year's AMEB Manual of Syllabuses
  • acknowledge that examinations will not be scheduled without payment
  • acknowledge it is the responsibility of the enroller and candidate to adequately prepare for the examination in line with the correct syllabus requirements
  • provide true and accurate information on the enrolment form
  • ensure candidates are ready to sit their examination from the first day of the examination session
  • pay the required fees associated with the enrolment
  • accept that late fees, change of enrolment, transfer fees, wait list fees and stipulated policy and procedure, will be enforced.

Teachers and private entrants are responsible for ensuring that they are familiar with the examination requirements and regulations prescribed in the current AMEB Manual of Syllabuses, and the administrative policies and procedures outlined in the 2020 enrollers' handbook (PDF, 7MB).

An examination schedule advising enrollers and candidates of the allocated examination time and date will be sent to the enroller no later than three weeks prior to practical examinations.

All rescheduling must occur in consultation with AMEB Qld. AMEB Qld must receive a Change of enrolment form (PDF, 208KB) to amend any enrolment details, which is to be accompanied by payment of the administration fee.

AMEB Qld examinations—Cancellation and/or transfer policy

If a candidate is unable to attend a scheduled examination, the enroller is requested to telephone AMEB Qld as soon as possible, and subsequently confirm the telephone advice in writing via an email to enquiries.ameb@qed.qld.gov.au.

Cancellations due to medical reasons must be supported by a medical certificate or documentation. When a cancellation is due to illness and substantiated by a medical certificate, the candidate will be offered the opportunity, subject to availability, to re-schedule the examination at a later date within the current calendar year upon payment of a transfer fee.

Candidates cannot re-sit an examination within the same session of that calendar year, but are eligible to re-enrol for that examination in a subsequent session later in the same calendar year. It is not possible to transfer an enrolment from one calendar year to the next.

Fees

Please review the AMEB Qld full fees and respective policies on pages 84–96 of the 2020 enrollers' handbook (PDF, 7MB).

Enrolment fees

Examination centres for practical and written examinations

Examination centres are selected based on availability within the nominated session and in convenient proximity to the enroller, where possible.

For examinations outside metropolitan Brisbane, a minimum of 5 hours examining is required. Where there are insufficient candidates to meet the minimum requirement, AMEB Qld may negotiate alternative arrangements. Options may include requesting candidates to travel to the nearest available centre, or providing the opportunity to withdraw from the examination with a full refund of the examination fee.

Teachers may request that music and speech and drama examinations be conducted at a private centre, studio or school. AMEB Qld requires a minimum of 3 hours examining in metropolitan areas and 5 hours examining in regional locations. The venue owner or a representative nominated by the venue must complete the Practical examination venue questionnaire (PDF, 448KB) and submit to enquiries.ameb@qed.qld.gov.au prior to any examinations being held there.

For theory examinations, candidates are encouraged to complete online examinations where possible. From 2020, written in-situ examinations will be available on an 'on application' basis. This means candidates may be able to take their paper-based examinations at an approved time and place that is convenient to them, rather than waiting for an annual scheduled session. Terms and conditions apply so please contact AMEB Qld for more information if you are interested.

Privacy policy / non-disclosure of personal details

AMEB Qld will not divulge any personal information to individuals or organisations without the written permission of those concerned, unless required by law.

Read the AMEB Federal Office and the Queensland Government privacy policy for more information.

COVID-19 protocols for face-to-face examinations

The safety and wellbeing of AMEB Qld candidates, staff and community is our primary priority. AMEB Qld has produced an Epidemic/pandemic processes—COVID-19 protocols (PDF, 427KB) for face-to-face examinations, to ensure a safe environment for face-to-face examinations at the AMEB Ashgrove Studios. AMEB Qld has developed these processes following the advice and the directives of the Australian Government, and the Queensland Government Departments of Health and Education. The processes outline the commitment and responsibility of AMEB staff as well as candidate, parents and accompanists when visiting AMEB Ashgrove facilities.
