Welcome to the AMEB Victoria website

This website is intended to provide the information you need to enrol candidates for AMEB exams in Victoria. Details of examination requirements can be found in the 2017 Manual of Syllabuses, which is available to purchase from AMEB Victoria.


It is important to note that only material in the current syllabuses can be presented for examination. Within each syllabus there are a number of regulations, requirements and objectives for each level. If, once you have read the syllabus, you have any questions please contact us to clarify any aspects that may not be clear.


I am delighted to announce some exciting new developments at AMEB this year, including:

  • revised syllabuses for Trumpet, Trombone and Euphonium; and
  • a new Recital exam format to be trialled in Flute, Trumpet and Violin.

For more information on these developments, please go to the News section of the website.

AMEB’s new Musical Theatre syllabus, which was launched in November 2015, has proven to be very popular; and the portfolio of Rockschool exams, which are now delivered by AMEB in Australia, is progressively being updated and expanded.

This will be the final year that candidates will be able to enrol for an AMEB examination in Electronic Organ or Accordion Classical Free Bass, as these syllabuses will be withdrawn at the end of 2017 and will not be replaced. Also, the Fellowship in Music, Australia examination will be withdrawn at the end of 2017.


Early exam sessions and special exam sessions

We encourage you to consider enrolling candidates for practical exams in Term 2 or 3. These sessions are less busy so we are better able to accommodate your scheduling requests, with the added benefit that candidates will be able to avoid exams clashing with end of year activities in Term 4.


Please note that some subjects are only offered in ‘special’ sessions in July and November. These are: Accordion, CPM, Electronic Organ, Ensemble, Harp, Organ, Recorder and Percussion. However, it is possible for exams in these instruments to be scheduled outside published session dates, if there is sufficient examining time in a particular location. Please contact us if you would like to find out more about this possibility.


Enrolling information

When enrolling, please remember to write any special requests on the enrolment form and submit forms before the closing date. With sufficient notice we can accommodate requests to avoid dates of school camps, VCE exams, etc.; and make special provisions for candidates with special needs.


AMEB is here to promote and recognise achievement in music and we wish you every success with your teaching or music studies this year. At AMEB Victoria, we aim to provide a friendly, efficient and professional service and we look forward to working with you in 2017.
