Video exams 2020

AMEB Qld has fast-tracked the development of video examinations for candidates wishing to pursue their musical journey through the current COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2020, AMEB Repertoire examinations will be offered as video examinations in response to physical distancing and home confinement guidelines. During 2020, a candidate who cannot undertake an in-situ examination due to the above guidelines, will be able to complete a Repertoire, For Leisure (Repertoire) and contemporary popular music (CPM) (Repertoire) examination by video as an alternative.

Teachers should prepare the candidate for the particular Repertoire, For Leisure (Repertoire) or CPM (Repertoire) 2020 only examination in accordance with AMEB’s syllabus requirements. The 'For Leisure' Repertoire examination requirements for Piano (PDF, 86KB), Saxophone (PDF, 92KB) and Singing (PDF, 92KB) can be accessed from the provided links. The CPM (Repertoire) syllabus (PDF, 127KB) requirements can be accessed through the link provided.

The Video Repertoire Examination syllabus requirements are the same as an in-situ Repertoire examination syllabus requirements. Please refer to the relevant syllabus for the candidate's particular level and grade in the 2019 or 2020 Manual of Syllabuses.

Please note that these video examination requirements may be updated in response to trial feedback and any other advice and directives from state departments’ and other relevant bodies.

To submit a video examination candidates will need to:

  1. record the performance in one take (no breaks) with a good quality recording device
  2. upload the performance video to YouTube (see Guide to recording and uploading video examinations instructions (PDF, 932KB))
  3. complete the Repertoire video examination video submission form and email it to AMEB Qld inbox: VideoRepertoireExam.amebqld@qed.qld.gov.au.

A submission form will be issued to the enroller to forward to the candidate. AMEB Qld will schedule an examiner to assess the video recording and provide a result in the report, in the same way they would in an in-situ examination in accordance with the objectives and grading descriptors listed in the 2020 Manual of Syllabuses. An AMEB Repertoire or For Leisure (Repertoire) certificate will be issued to each candidate who has successfully completed all the requirements.

The documents below contain resources for enrollers, parents and candidates for setting up and submitting a candidates video examination. The Guide to recording and uploading video examinations and instructions is intended as compulsory reading prior to undertaking the video examination.
