Yes I was going to suggest trying to call them and at the same time send in the cheque and entry form - you can only try (and keep your fingers crossed!!) (To tell you the absolute truth - that's what I'm doing!! I messed up my online entry form on Friday night and accidentally left off a theory candidate (my very poor excuse is that I enter them so rarely that it slipped my mind!) I only remembered at 1am but the online form had closed so I'm praying hard!!!)
Maybe it's something to do with the weather??!! I've never done this before either!!
Ye Gods, but I have come so close to doing this so many times. Exam entries at different centres. Practical exams. Theory exams. And now I am complicating things nicely by entering practical exams for AB, Trinity and RockSchool and theory exams at the AB.
Never actually missed an entry date yet. Did turn up for a students concert once where I was the accompanist, and left the music at home. That was interesting.
I am the accompanist for a music festival in Grimsby in November. The closing date for entries was Saturday. Saturday morning came, and a shed-load of entries arrived on my doorstep, with photocopied accomps enclosed. I assume the individual responsible for the entries saw my name and address in the syllyblobs and sent everything to me in a last minute panic to get the entries in.
Maybe we should just hand everything over to the parents and make them responsible for entries. OK, so masses of kids for whom such-and-such an exam is absolutely vital
would miss their entries, but at least it would not be our fault.
andyamg, take heart. The AB is a business that needs our money. Phone them tomorrow. Good luck.
