Near enough, yes! They're music exams. I didn't take the exams - faaar too old to be putting myself through that sort of thing - we just covered the syllabus. You have to do rudiments at required tempos, set pieces, both solo and accompanied, and music theory.

And then you start to learn how to play properly ;)
