Official Exam Papers


Thank you for visiting the RCM Official Examination Papers section of MusicExamHQ.

Below is a list of RCM Official Examination Papers you can purchase to help you prepare for the music theory examinations organized by The Achievement Program (USA) or the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM).

The RCM Official Examination Papers are the best possible tools for building a student’s confidence in preparation for writing theory examinations. Students who work through the practice papers in these books will be more than prepared to “make the grade”!

Appropriate for review sessions and mock examinations, and compatible with any theory method, each book contains three actual papers used in previous examination sessions, plus one additional practice paper.

The official music theory examination papers can be used for students of both the RCM examinations as well as The Achievement Program
