I've got my grade 8 singing in three weeks and i'm really worried about it. I did really well in my grade 7 but we're doing this one all in a rush and my teacher has such high expectations! aaaah! And the aural tests - what a nightmare!!! Anyone else in the same boat?? xxxx
Maybe it is a rush because of tghe high standards of uni now but if you don't do as well as you want, you can always do it again! At least you haven't got a big jump. I spent less than 9 months on my grade 8 pieces but my previous exam was grade 5 so I had a 3 grade jump trying to meet the entry requirements for uni! I came out with a merit so Iwas happy and my teacher...well if I was happy she was over the moon and back again as she almost knocked me off my chair adn she hugged me lol!
You can do it! I know it is a lot of work but you have the musical knowledge and preceding grades behind you!
