NZ Exam Fees

Fees for AEC examinations are less than for RAV examinations where the RAD supplies the venue and pianist

If a student wants to sit an Advanced Foundation, Advanced 1, Advanced 2 or Solo Seal exam wishes to take advantage of the reduced exam entry fee they must ensure that membership application form and payment of the membership fee is processed and sent to the RAD Wellington office at least 21 days prior to the closing date of the examination session they are wanting to enter into.
