The British School of Kuwait community extends warm congratulations to students who recently passed their Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) instrumental examinations. The British School of Kuwait has been the examination centre for these esteemed music examinations, operated by the British Council, for all the students in Kuwait.
A total of 53 BSK students took examinations which were held in the new BSK Instrumental Suite. It was a delight to see eight of our youngest students entering for the preparatory level test – a less formal exam designed to introduce young students to the examination process. Forty five students took examinations ranging from Grade 1 through to Grade 8 and achieved excellent results, with 34% gaining Distinctions and 33% gaining Merits. Notable mentions go to Marti Vernis (Grade 8 Cello with Merit), Sumati Butterworth (Grade 5 Violin with Merit), Wenxuan Zhang (Grade 4 Violin with Distinction and Grade 4 Piano with Merit) and Dana Moukhaiber (Grade 4 Violin with Distinction).
The ABRSM examinations provide an internationally recognised benchmark of student performance and, at the higher grades, can be converted into UCAS points in support of entry to prestigious UK and international universities. They are an integral part of the instrumental programme at BSK. For further information about music at the school and the opportunity for music scholarships, please email Mr John Talbot.
