Modern Grades with ISTD

Primary Modern

This is the children’s first opportunity to take an exam, usually held at the end of Year 1 but could be as early as the end of Reception. 

Children go into the exam room in a group of 3 to 5 children, with their dance teacher. There will also be the examiner in the room along with a lady controlling the iPod with the usual syllabus music playing through speakers. The exam will take roughly 20 to 30 minutes.

Grade 1 Modern

This is now entering the Graded work and the examiner is expecting to see a good use of technique with full knowledge of the syllabus. For all the grades children will usually enter the exam room in groups of 4 ideally and without the teacher. This exam can be taken as early as the end of Year 1 but usually the end of Year 2 or later depending on the class ability.
