Our Exams

PRSSV is the leading examination board concerned with the support and the promotion of World Music and Dance and it has over 30 years of experience in providing graded examinations. Currently, the subjects provided are Indian classical music (both Carnatic and Hindustani subjects) and Steel Pan. The organisation is committed to expanding its provision for World Music and Dance as a part of its development process and is currently working on the syllabuses for Folk Dance, Dholak (Dholaki), Bouzouki and Djembe.

The suite of qualifications that PRSSV offers in World Music and Dance Performance include graded qualifications taking a candidate from beginner to advanced level, with performance and teaching qualifications up to Diploma Level. Also, PRSSV provides accredited qualifications in Heritage Skills including oral history, exhibition development, digitisation and care of collections.

All students who appear for these examinations will have studied in a unitised programme accredited by OCN Credit4Learning. This accreditation is evidence that PRSSV examinations are audited to the same standard, quality and expectations as for example a GCSE, an A Level or in Higher Education and are therefore recognised internationally.

Anyone interested in appearing for these examinations or teachers wishing to register their students for these examinations can contact the PRSSV office for further information.
