Health and Hygiene protocols for visitors

Effective 22 April 2024 until amended or withdrawn

The health, safety and wellbeing of employees and visitors is our highest priority and AMEB Victoria will endeavour to provide an environment that is as safe as reasonably practicable.

Each candidate may be accompanied by no more than two additional persons, plus the associate artist/accompanist, where applicable. All visitors must follow any reasonable direction given by the official Venue Supervisor in relation to exam administration, health and safety.

Visitor’s obligations
Do not enter the premises if feeling unwell or exhibiting cold or flu‐like symptoms or receiving a positive result to a COVID‐19 test within the last 5 days. Any visitor exhibiting cold or flu‐like symptoms may be asked to leave the premises.

Candidates presenting with cold or flu‐like symptoms (such as coughing) will not be able to be examined.

On Arrival
Candidates and accompanying persons should arrive at the Hawthorn Studios no more than 20 minutes prior to the scheduled examination time, unless advised otherwise.
• Proceed to the reception desk.
• The candidate should present the Notice of Examination to be viewed. This must be a printed copy of the Notice, including the titles of pieces, to be handed to the examiner at the commencement of the examination. Diploma exam candidates must also present photo ID.
• Note that no food or drink can be brought into the building – bottled water excepted.
