Trinity College London is a leading international exam board and independent education charity that has been providing assessments around the world since 1877 in the assessment of communicative and performance skills covering music, drama, combined arts and English language.
With over 850,000 candidates a year in more than 60 countries worldwide, Trinity qualifications are specifically designed to help students progress.
Our aim is to inspire teachers and learners through the creation of assessments that are enjoyable to prepare for, rewarding to teach and that develop the skills needed in real life.
At the heart of Trinity’s work is the belief that effective communicative and performance skills are life enhancing, know no boundaries and should be within reach of us all. We exist to promote and foster the best possible communicative and performance skills through assessment, content and training that is innovative, personal and authentic.
Our solo digital exams in Speech and Drama enable candidates to have their performance recorded during our exam recording date and time, and we then submit the video recording via our online platform to be assessed by the Trinity College London examiners. The exams have the same academic rigour as face-to-face exams and candidates gain full recognition for their achievements, with the same certificate and UCAS points awarded as for the face-to-face exams.
