last term i failed my grd 6 violin exam. I got 96 - 19 on all the pieces. My teacher thinks we should do it in the summer and change at least 2 pieces. I want to do it again this term and keep the pieces. She has agreed and we have put my name down, put she is unsure whether i should sit it. What should i do?
I don't want to still be doing my grade 6 in the summer and that is quite a busy term at school while this one isnt. i want to move on and at the moment i'm learning some other music but we are going to look at the pieces i did after half term.

If you've paid and been entered I would go ahead at least so that you don't waste your (or your parents) money.
Do you (and your teacher) feel that you have made a improvement on at least your pieces since last time?

Yes, If you have improved then it would be a good idea. You were only four marks off the last time anyway. Good luck.

do you know what specifically went awry in the exam? you say you lost marks in the pieces - so the other sections were passed then?
i would say that you should work on the specific things that went wrong in the exam, and give all the other pieces another shot. and with this extra prep time, it won't be unreasonable to expect a good mark.

i know what you mean, i've just failed my grade 5 piano and grade 6 theory twice! i really want to change my pieces but i know them so well that i'm just gunna keep going. if you think u've improved a lot, then keep going, but if you fail this time, then i think it might be a good thing if you change the ones that you're not getting on with.

What about learning one or two of the other pieces, so that when the time comes you have the choice of which ones to play?
