Thanks guys for the well wishes
I was really really nervous... My fingers were trembling and I could not play properly
Really disappointed with myself..
It's my first piano exam ever.. Started learning the piano last february.. Started preparing for Grade 4 exam this year.. It has been 6 long yrs since I ever sat for any kind of exam and I felt really stressed and nervous..
Really disappointed with my performance cos it seems that all my hard work has gone down the drain
Trying not to be too hard on myself.. I guess I should be happy if I can pass
ps. There was a little girl taking the exam and she was asking her mum what examination is?!?! hahaha How I envy her then
Poor you! They say that some nerves are a good thing but it's horrible when your so nervous that it affects your performance.
Just remember that the examiner will want you to pass and am sure will have noticed how nervous you were.
Also, It's usually never as bad as you think!
Well done you for progressing so quickly to Grade 4 since last February. If worst comes to worst you can always re-try, at least you'll be prepared for those pesky nerves!
(I've got to re-try part of my Diploma this Christmas
