What are the closing dates for Guitar grade entry forms?

Well, for the main exam bodies for guitar exams in the UK (and beyond) there tend to be 3 examination periods a year for all of them. Each one has slightly different closing dates and examination periods, so here we aim to collate all the relevant information in one handy place for you to bookmark and have available for easy reference.

  These dates apply for all RGT exam syllabuses including Electric, Acoustic, Rock, Ukulele and Bass.
