London College of Music Examinations

Founded in 1887 as an establishment devoted to musical education, the London College of Music (LCM) was incorporated as a public educational institution in 1939, and became part of University of West London (formerly called Thames Valley University) in 1991. The new school of London College of Music and Media was launched in 1997, with three main areas of expertise: Music, Media and Creative Technologies. LCM was renamed the Faculty of the Arts in 2005. Within the Faculty, the London College of Music continues to give outstanding provision for both performance and composition; it has embraced innovations and advances, creating one of the country's most prestigious and sought-after degrees in Music Technology. Today, examinations are held throughout the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland and at many overseas centres, and are unique in the graded examinations world in being awarded by a university.

LCM Examinations is an international examinations board offering graded and diploma qualifications in music, drama and communication.

LCM's Early Learning Music and Speech is intended for children aged 3 to 6 years. These exams aim to provide encouragement and a basis for assessment in music and drama/communication at a very early stage of development.

All candidates will receive a written report; this will not include marks, but will be awarded a PASS, MERIT or DISTINCTION. All successful candidates will be awarded with a certificate.

Teachers enter children as a group. A group of between 5 and 9 in number is considered suitable. Each child should wear a large name badge. On successful completion of the examination a single report will be issued. Each child taking part in the group will receive a certificate. Teachers are expected to take an active part in the children's work during the examination and are invited to work 'in role' in all three sections.

The examiner will look for:

  • involvement by the children
  • response to other members of the group
  • control, but not inhibition, by the teacher
  • ability to complete the examination
  • ability and willingness to talk to the examiner about the examination work, and subjects that arise from it
  • coherence in the progress of the examination work
