For the final exam, it is strongly recommended:

  1. That the online final exam be proctored* in case the exam is ever submitted for secondary school credit;
  2. That students confirm with their school that a proctored* online exam will be accepted for secondary school credit.

To ensure the academic integrity of the exam, the Proctor should NOT be a relative (e.g. mother, father, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, cousin, etc.) NOR should the Proctor be the personal music teacher of the exam candidate.

* In light of the current global need for social distancing, the proctoring requirement for online exams will be waived as a one time exception effective from March 2020 until further notice.
