As of 1 July 2020, all online music theory courses will become entirely browser-based. Each lesson test will launch in a new browser window. AMEB software will no longer be required for the online courses.
These browser-based tests will allow course candidates to complete their lesson tests on devices such as tablets and smartphones in addition to laptop and desktop computers. This change will make our online courses easier to use and more accessible for anyone who would prefer to use a tablet or smartphone.
This change will only apply for online courses and not online exams. All exams will continue to use the AMEB Exams software.
What does this mean for my course?
There is no need to take any action; your course will continue to be valid. Your course lesson tests will automatically launch in your browser from 1 July, and your Course Key, Course Pin and expiry date will remain the same. You will notice that the lesson tests will look a little different when they open in the browser but will still work as before. Results for these tests and all previous tests will still be available within each lesson.
If you are also enrolled for any online theory exams, you will still need to use the AMEB Exams software to access practice exams and your official exam.
Can I still use the software-based version of the lesson tests?
No – all courses will only be accessible via your browser from 1 July.
As the situation with respect to COVID-19 continues to evolve, the health and safety of our AMEB community – students, teachers, examiners and staff alike – remains our highest priority. We are closely monitoring developments and will continue to be guided by the advice and directives of the Australian Government. During the disruptions to normal exam delivery, we are offering greater flexibility to reschedule and additional support in many areas. We have also developed a suite of exam syllabus options to enable you to undertake your exam through 2020.
