Piano examinations are there if you want to take them. I have a 95% pass rate for ABRSM exams, with over 50% passed with Distinction. However, I appreciate that they are not for everybody and are mostly taken by children in agreement with parents. Piano examinations are taken in grades starting at grade 1 through to grade 8. I currently use the ABRSM exam syllabus which can be undertaken throughout the year and for most achieved within a 12 week cycle. The examinations are carried out in Swindon and involve playing a number of set pieces, scales etc.
