Please note that there is no guarantee that my request for these dates will be given but I am hoping that as my application for ISTD dates went in over 2 weeks ago we may be lucky! I will confirm as soon as possible. Exam fees as published for 2012 are as follows:- (Please note that these may rise slightly when new fees for 2013 are published)!
ISTD Modern and Tap
Gd 2 — £31 / Gd3 — £36 / Gd4 — £38 / Gd5 — £41 Gd6 — £44 / Intermediate — £65
Gd 4 — £41 / Gd5 — £43 (Intermediate Foundation who should be entered around July time, please note that the fee for this exam is currently £78 – just so that you know now and can start saving up)! I realise this is an important time for a lot of these girls due to school / college exams and I will let you know the scheduled date range for the North West session as soon as they are published by the RAD.
If any pupils in the above grades do not wish to be entered for these examinations please let me know as soon as possible so that all my forward planning has not been in vain! Please note that if this is the case, pupils must still attend any scheduled exam classes in order to attain the standard required to move on into the next grade.
