I was wondering what a pass in grade 8 violin is worth in Scotland. Is it an extra higher or advanced higher even? Don't want to spend loads of money and time doing these stressy exams if there isn't a very good outcome. Thanks

I wouldn’t say it was another higher or advanced higher but it would certainly look impressive on a personal statement and would be a great achievement and skill to have in general. Wish I could play an instrument 😂

From a purely academic standpoint - I believe ABRSM grade 6,7 and 8 music exams offer UCAS points roughly equating to highers / advanced highers and of course, are really good to have on your personal statement.

The ABRSM website shows how music grades translate to UCAS points: https://us.abrsm.org/en/our-exams/in...d-ucas-points/

I've sat Grade 8 and would definitely say it was worth it, just avoid doing it around prelims/exams. Happy playing

As 123543 has said they do give you UCAS points, however, it's worth keeping in mind that a lot of unis don't use UCAS points to make decisions about who to offer places to. That's not to say don't do it, but rather that you should do it because you want to, rather than to impress unis.
