The Associated Board is the world’s leading examination body for music, with a system of examinations and assessments in over 80 countries around the world. The Associated Board is linked to some of Europe’s leading Conservatoires – the Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music in London; the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama.

Established in 1889, the Associated Board provides schools, private teachers of music and the general public with a scheme of music examinations of recognised authority. Examinations are offered in 35 instruments, singing, theory and practical musicianship and are open to students of all ages. The Associated Board examines over half a million candidates each year making it the largest examining body for music in the world.

In 1991, the Associated Board was delighted to be asked to return to examine in Australia after an absence of more than 30 years. Associated Board examinations are conducted at St.Andrew’s Cathedral School, with the Board’s examiners making regular visits to Sydney.
