The RIAM Local Centre exams are coordinated by the Exams Office team which is made up of Dorothy McCauley, Clare O'Callaghan, Ruth Milligan-Moody and Bernadette O'Sullivan. Together they liase with teachers, parents and students from all over Ireland, as well as the many exam centres and venues that host the RIAM Local Centre exams. They schedule all of the exams, process the results once they have been vetted by the senior examiners, and prepare the certificates that go out to our 40,000 + exam students every year. They are also the main point of contact for our music and speech and drama examiners and they manage all of their timetables for examining throughout the year.
