Practical Exam Centres
A school or private studio enrolling candidates for a total examining time of three hours or more in a particular subject, during published session dates, can apply to host Practical exams. If you wish to host Practical exams outside the published session dates, please contact us before enrolling candidates to discuss your preferred dates so that we can check examiner availability.
One of the following Examination Centres must be selected on AMEB Connect during the enrolment process, unless an alternative venue has been arranged.
Melbourne Metropolitan Practical Examinations
When enrolling via AMEB Connect, candidates for Melbourne have two options available from the ‘Preferred Venue’ drop-down list: ‘AMEB Studios’ (in Hawthorn) OR ‘Enter a venue number’. If ‘Enter a venue number’ is selected an AMEB Victoria Venue Code is required. Schools and studios with their own venue number should enter it here. If you have permission for your candidates to be examined at a private school or studio enter the appropriate number here. Only the school/studio owner can provide you with their venue number.
