I did grade 7 viola today, and am a bit worried about how my scales have gone. I don't suppose anyone could suggest the sort of mark I might have got?
C and Eb major: both were fine
D minor harmonic: a complete mess, ended up a cross between harmonic and melodic
Db minor melodic: fine on way up, then somehow ended nearer D than Db (last note - which was right - sounded extremely flat)
Dominant 7th: fine
Diminished 7th: a bit wobbly, not disastrous
C Chromatic: fine
Eb double-stops: very good
Arpeggios: all fine
By fine I mean tuning was fine and rhythm was consistent. A couple of "fines" may have been a wee bit on the slow side, but there wasn't any hesitation (except for a small mind-blank as I tried to work out what the starting note of a dominant 7th in the key of A is, I had to think for a couple of seconds).
As you can see, it was quite a mixed bag! If some scales are bad, does that mean you can't pass? Or is it done more as an average? Thank you!
