It is best for a exam taking student to have at least a couple lessons in the exam venue so the teacher can conduct a mock exam there and also to make adjustments to the playing as the exam piano may be quite different than what the student played at home and in lesson. However, in the event that teacher is unable to conduct the lessons at the exam venue, I think the least a student can do is to rent at least one session to try out the piano and familiarise with the surrounding. It is not a must, but for students with limited performing experience it can help to ease the nerve substantially on the actual day.
