T: +61 8 8313 8088

Mon - Fri: 9am - 1pm

The below office hours will resume after SA's 'circuit breaker' COVID-19 lockdown 18-24 November.

Mon: 9am - 1pm, 2pm - 5pm
Wed: 9am - 1pm
Fri: 9am - 1pm, 2pm - 5pm

ameb@adelaide.edu.au

 

Please note, from 18-24 November, the AMEB SA & NT office will be closed. Staff are working remotely and are contactable via email or phone (see above).


Certificates

Due to a backlog of certificates for online practical and theory exams from March to June and the current closure, certificates for practical music sessions will be delayed. A letter of attainment can be provided as proof of qualification where a certificate is not yet available. 

If you have received a notification advising that a certificate is ready to collect, this can be done after the 18 - 24 November COVID-19 lockdown.


Cancellations and Transfers

Sessions due to run 18 - 24 November have been cancelled. For those that were due to be examined in this timeframe, we can offer the following alternatives:

  • Free transfer to a new Online Exams Session (which is 'entry by transfer' only - more information below). Submissions are due 2 December.
  • Free transfer (and exam change - if required and appropriate) to the Recorded Repertoire Session (submissions are due 10 December)
  • Free transfer to another in-person session (this may be arranged 1-15 December, but space is limited, and we cannot guarantee this outcome. Transfer to 2021 can also be requested for all exams except CPM).
  • Free transfer and upgrade to a 2021 in-person session (if the difference is paid).
  • Free transfer to an Online Exam Session in 2021 (this session will run early in the examining year for a limited time).
Transfer requests for candidates scheduled 19 - 24 November must be submitted in writing to ameb@adelaide.edu.au. Please specify the candidate name, exam key and the transfer option you wish to take, and we will respond with further instructions.

Private Venues that wish to reschedule a whole session of exams affected by the lockdown to another date must submit their request in writing, outlining their preferred dates and times from 25 November to 15 December. These sessions may be rescheduled subject to examiner availability and additional flexibility in date and time requests will facilitate this process.

Are there transfer options available for candidates scheduled to be examined from 25 November? At this stage, we are planning to continue with sessions from 25 November, and free transfers will only be available to candidates who are sick, injured, in COVID-19 quarantine (or recommended to self-isolate by a GP or specialist) at the time of the candidate's exam.


Awards Ceremony & Showcase Concert


The 2020 Awards Ceremony & Showcase Concert has been cancelled. A smaller ceremony will take place in March 2021 for successful Diploma candidates and, subject to maximum gathering sizes, prizes may also be awarded at this ceremony.
The Prizes Committee will meet at the conclusion of all 2020 sessions and this year's Prize winners will be notified of their success in early 2021.

SESSION UPDATE

Please note:
  • The below dates are subject to change. The University of Adelaide will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and AMEB SA & NT will respond appropriately in order to ensure that candidates, their families, examiners and supervisors can safely participate in sessions.
  • For in-person, practical music sessions at the Central Venue (The University of Adelaide), capacity is limited. Exams will take place on weekdays and Saturdays. Account Holder scheduling requests must allow flexibility for scheduling and should not limit options to Saturdays or one or two particular dates. If capacity is reached in a particular session at the Central Venue, AMEB SA & NT will prioritise the scheduling of candidates who require accompaniment, and then level 2 piano candidates. Although every effort will be made to accommodate as many candidates as possible, if necessary, office staff will contact Account Holders advising the options available to candidates who cannot be accommodated.
  • We encourage all Level 1 candidates to consider Online Exam alternatives, particularly those who do not require an accompanist.
  • If there is a COVID-19 case on-campus affecting the Hartley or Schulz buildings, these sessions may be rescheduled at very short notice.
  • Where there is a late enrolment closing date, a $25 fee per candidate will be applied (no exceptions accepted).
  • Adelaide Metro Central Venue Sessions are open to specific Level 1 and 2 practical music subject groupings, stated in the table below for each session. Subject groupings are:
    • Piano, which includes Piano, Piano for Leisure, CPM Keyboard, Keyboard Inductions & P Plate Piano
    • Brass, which includes Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Bass, Trombone, Tuba, Euphonium & Band
    • Voice, which includes Singing, Singing for Leisure, Musical Theatre & CPM Voice
    • Orchestral Strings, which includes Violin, Viola, Cello & Double Bass
    • Woodwind, which includes Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Saxophone, Saxophone for Leisure, Bassoon
