ROCKSCHOOL ACOUSTIC GUITAR SYLLABUS GUIDE1
Introduction
Welcome to the Rockschool Syllabus Guide for Acoustic Guitar.
This guide is designed to accompany the relevant grade book and give teachers and students clear
information relating to the requirements of each graded music examination offered by Rockschool.
The Rockschool website, www.rslawards.com contains further guidance relating to the practical
aspects of the examinations together with audio examples to help students become familiar with
the types of material used in the examinations.
We advise all entrants to read our Examination Regulations before entering for a Rockschool
examination, www.rslawards.com/about–us/regulations
The value of RSL qualifications
Period of operation
RSL advocates an open access approach to qualifications,
providing a range of syllabi, designed to accommodate a wide
variety of candidates of different ages, experience and levels
of achievement. RSL awards qualifications that are listed on
the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) in England
and Northern Ireland by the Office of Qualifications and
Examinations Regulation (Ofqual). RSL is committed to
maintaining and improving its reputation for excellence by
providing high quality education and training through its
syllabi, examinations, music and resources.
This Syllabus Guide covers Grade Examinations
and Performance Certificates from February 2016.
RSL & UCAS
For students applying for work or University, many potential
employers see graded music exams in a very positive way.
Recognised qualifications demonstrate an ability to dedicate
commitment to extra–curricular activities, providing evidence
of versatility which many students find beneficial within UCAS
(Universities & Colleges Admissions Service) applications and
for university entrance interviews.
Our qualifications carry allocated points on the UCAS
tariff. For full details relating to the allocation of points for
our qualifications, please see:
