I'm doing grade 4 in march- things should be fine,
but any tips on keeping calm would be aprreciated!
If you can, play your pieces for as many people as possible beforehand so that you get used to playing when you are more nervous (at least this is what I did for Grade 2 and it really helped. By the time I played for the examiner all I thought was that at least it wasn't one of my friends!). I have started playing my Grade 4 pieces for friends now (exam at the end of March) and already I can see the difference - I can finish the pieces in front of them instead of falling apart and stopping....)
Good luck with yours.
