The Australian Music Examination Board (AMEB) is the most prestigious and well-recognised examination system in Australia, with the purpose of providing graded assessments of the achievements of music students and for students of speech and drama. AMEB standards are quoted as entry level requirements to university programs, courses of higher study and Australian Performance equivalents. AMEB qualifications are recognised nationally and internationally by such prestigious institutions as Cambridge University Overseas Examination Board.
