Just got back from choir and thought I'd just check my e-mails one last time today ...

I have a merit (127) for Grade 4 Oboe smile.gif

Good luck to anyone still waiting


Well done Pianophrase. Worth the wait!

Congrats to fellow pianists on your great results!
I always feel its a greater challenge for us since we are required to play on a hithertofore unknown instrument (all other instrumentalists, except organists, get to play on their own well-known, well-beloved, well-banged-up instrument!)

My result for this session: grade 5 - 133 smile.gif

now gearing up for cello grade 6 in July!


Congratulations, celloml! biggrin.gif

I have just received my mark sheet and I thought you good people might like one of the comments....

For the aural test involving clapping back the rhythm I had to make it up because I had a mind blank and forgot the entire thing. The comment on the sheet was "somewhat experimental clapping" smile.gif

Another student here excited and nervous that they might get a text any time next week..........I took grade 4 piano on the 29th and I'm waiting :-).

Hello to all by the way, I'm Alan and I'm 45 and love piano :-) (started as an adult learner in about 2007...)


Just got my result today (3 calendar weeks + 1 day with Easter in the middle); a pass at 111 biggrin.gif Was secretly hoping for a merit, but a pass is a pass.

Thanks for the welcomes guys !

Time for a symbolic pre-order purchase of the new grade 5 book I think :-)

Have just returned from holiday to an answerphone message from my piano teacher saying I'd passed my G8 - I am ecstatic and amazed. I am 68 and was so nervous during the exam that I thought I'd messed it up big time and was extra nervous because my examiner was young enough to be my son! But here I am with G8 under my belt - wonderful!! I went back to playing the piano four years ago having passed my G5 when I was thirteen. My now teacher saw me through G5 theory, G6,G7 and now G8 - she is wonderful. I love the piano too and play endlessly for pleasure and am wondering what I can play next. If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them. Congrats to all who have passed music exams this term - I know how you feel.

Is anyone else still waiting for a result? (given that the timetable should have had all results published by today)

That's fabulous ..... and inspires me to keep going :-). Two pieces I'd love to play if I could move my fingers fast enough are Clare de Lune (I can 'play' the first two dozen bars but then madness ensues) and the third movement of the Moonlight (presto agitato). Through sheer doggedness and passion I've learned the first movement of moonlight and can play it reasonably well to my ears, which is a stretch above my grade 4 :-), but I haven't found the same passion for another piece yet (Clare de Lune would do but seems beyond me at present)...................
