CHANGES DUE TO COVID-19

AMEB SA & NT Office Hours

The AMEB SA & NT office premises is occasionally staffed, but is predominantly running remotely and contactable via email Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. We are also receiving calls Monday to Friday 9am to 1pm.

The office is open by appointment and for exams - if you need to attend in person to pick up a certificate, purchase exams or an AMEB publication, please email or call to arrange a time.

Certificates

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


Transfers

Transfer requests will only be accepted in writing via email to ameb@adelaide.edu.au. For any candidates enrolled in a cancelled session, free transfers can be arranged to a later in-person session (where the closing date has not passed) or to the Online Exam Session (or Recorded Exam Session). As a special dispensation for 2020, a transfer and upgrade option is available, if the difference is paid.

If a candidate wishes to transfer across the year, this can be arranged. All transfer requests must be sent in writing via email.

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
