ALL FEES QUOTED IN SOUTH AFRICAN RAND CURRENCY AND INCLUDE 15% VAT,
EXCEPT FOR NEIGHBOURING COUNTRIES WHERE VAT IS NOT APPLICABLE.

 

Only one single payment from teacher or school will be accepted for both Graded and Vocational Graded examinations. We are unable to accept individual payments from candidates.

 

A fee is payable for each candidate entered for an Examination, Class Award, Solo Performance Award, Presentation Class or Demonstration Class.

There are two fee structures, one for examinations in AECs (Approved Examination Centre, normally the teacher's own studio) and one for examinations in RAVs (RAD Approved Venue, premises provided by the RAD, primarily but not exclusively for Vocational Graded examination levels). The RAV fees are higher, as these cover the RAD's costs in providing studio hire, pianist/CD operator and the Examination Attendant.

The content and requirements of Examinations and Classes are set out in Specifications including Examination Information, Rules and Regulations document available on the Academy's websites www.rad.org.za/specifications.

Candidates will receive a certificate, result form/assessment report, medal and/or bar according to the type and level of award, and the outcome.

  • The Member fee for Advanced levels is applicable only if the candidate is a member at the time of receipt of the application; the candidate cannot apply for membership at the same time as entering.

  • Venue Surcharge – the RAD has an official studio at national headquarters in Bramley only, and teachers who enter candidates in an AEC session in Johannesburg are required to pay a venue surcharge of R30 for each candidate. This surcharge is over and above the examination fee.

  • Where candidates are entered for examinations in Approved Examination Centres (AECs - teachers' own studios) and there is less than the published minimum amount of examining (usually three hours), the Applicant is required to pay the minimum fee level as quoted in the Fees Table.

  • All fees are quoted in South African Rand currency and include 15% VAT, except for neighbouring countries where VAT is not applicable.
    Only one single payment from teacher or school will be accepted. We are unable to accept individual payments from candidates.

  • The RAD only publishes examination fees for countries where there is an established provision of examination services and where the scheduled examination session exceeds a minimum of seven days. Applicants requesting an examination service in a country where the Academy has no presence, or where the area is considered to be sufficiently remote to render a tour uneconomic, or where the number of examination days has fallen below the minimum of seven days, must contact the RAD national office in Johannesburg as further conditions will apply.

  • Applications made after the published closing date will incur a surcharge (see table). Late entries cannot be accepted more than 14 days after the closing date in any circumstances.
    Entry forms returned to the Applicant requiring amendment or completion and any changes made to entries received after the closing date will incur a fixed surcharge as shown in the table.

  • Applicants whose payments are returned by the bank will incur a fixed surcharge of R200 each time a fee is rejected. Applicants whose credit card payments are refused by the credit card company will incur a handling fee equivalent to that charged by the credit card company.

  • Fees for replacement certificates, result forms, assessment reports, medals and bars are shown in the fees table.
