The examinations are designed to give the student a strong basic technique with gradual build up through the Grades. There are six grades - One, Two, Three, Four, Five and Six. The suggested minimum age for Grade candidates is 8 years old.
Candidates over 30 are termed 'mature age' students.
Assessments have been introduced to run parallel with the grades 1 to 6 thereby enabling these students to experience an examination situation without the stress of a result whilst gaining confidence and receiving a written assessment of their performance.All rules pertaining to the grades apply to the Assessments, however no result is given.
