Time flies and its December, ABRSM Performance Grade Examination finally opened for online booking in Hong Kong.
轉眼又到十二月，ABRSM Performance Grade Examination (英國皇家音樂學院表演評級術科考試)終於開放網上預約服務給香港考生。
I tried my very best to login to ABRSM’s website on the first day of the online application, but … timeout again and again.
I had no option but to give up.
That night, I attempted again and found the latest announcement made by ABRSM apologising for the temporary closure of the online booking service.
Probably this was another example of lack of user estimation and/or loading test prior to release.
Anyway, I tried the following day and thanked god, I managed to enter the ABRSM online booking system.
The first step required was to create an user account for the online booking.
Other than the username, a “National ID” must be provided as well. Here I used my Hong Kong Identity Card number and I believed the HKSAR Passport number might also be used as well.
Once the user account was created, you needed to login to portal.abrsm.org to continue with the online booking.
The first item to select was the assessment type. In Hong Kong, only the following is currently provided:
Practical Exams, Assessment Location –> Remote
完成後需要登入 portal.abrsm.org 作正式報名。
Practical Exams， Assessment Location –> Remote
Then select the required instrument (Piano), Grade (Performance Grade 8), If you have any special needs, specify via “Access arrangement“.
Click on “Show available booking options” to continue.
接著選擇樂器 (Piano)， 級別 (Performance Grade 8)，如果有特殊需求，可經 “Access arrangement“申請。
按下 “Show available booking options“。
The system would then show the required time for the remote assessment (Duration). The first part of the screen was for the submission time-slot for all students (if more than one candidate). As I only had one, I just scrolled down to display the second portion of the screen.
In the “Select candidates individually” screen, clicked on “Select (0/1)” to select the reqiured recording submission time-slot. Noticed that the time shown in “Available duration” must be longer than the required assessment duration.
在 “Select candidates individually“畫面，按下 “Select (0/1)” 選擇所需遞交時段。留意所選的剩餘時間 (Available duration)需多於評級所需時間。
Once the required time-slot was available, keyed in the candidate’s personal information in the next screen. One important point to note is that HKSAR Passport number MUST BE provided for the “National ID”. HK Identity Card number is not acceptable.
如果成功分派網上遞交時段，接著便需提供考生個人資料，特別需留意是，香港考生在 National ID 所指是。特區護照號碼，特區身份証是不附要求的。
Upon successful completion, the system would display the booking details just made.
Finally job done!
Based on the reserved submission time-slot, the next step is to arrange for the professional recording studio for the filming process.
And for my boy … , get prepare for the assessment!
