I am taking/sitting/sitting for my flute examination next week. Are the words in bold are all possible in the said sentence? Thanks.

sit - definition of sit by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
So apparently, in British English it is common to say: I am sitting my exam next week. However, I would say: to take an exam or maybe: to undergo an examination.
And I'd be very surprised if you didn't have to stand in a flute exam. Perhaps a flautist could advise.
You stand throughout a flute exam. The only exception is (in some exams) when you sit at the piano for the aural section.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
