FAQs – Music Theory Tools and Notation

How soon do I need to take my Online Theory Exam or Course?

You have 12 months of access to your online exams and courses before they expire (from date of purchase).
We’ll send you a 30-day notice ahead of that expiry date as a reminder. If you need more time, you can purchase a 28 day extension using the link in the notice email.
Please note that your exam or course will be automatically deactivated at the end of the expiry date.

How can I share my practice exam results with my teacher?

If your teacher enrolled you, they can access your practice exam results through their SCORE account (except in ACT, NSW, Victoria). To find them, click on My enrolments, and find your enrolment under My online exams, then click on the Action button to view practice exams.
If your teacher didn’t enrol you, they can still see your results if you share your Enrolment Key and PIN with them to log into SCORE.

How can our school whitelist AMEB platforms?

Let's start with a little trouble-shooting. First, check that your web browser is up-to-date. If you’ve enrolled in a Speech & Performance Theory Exam, also check that you have downloaded and installed the latest version of our software onto your computer.
If you’re still experiencing problems, please ask your school's IT team to add the domain name www.exams.ameb.edu.au to the whitelist of your school firewall and proxy servers. For more information, see our Proxy Configuration Guide.
