Sheephops I rang them on mon and was told within 2 weeks as they are currently sorting out certificates. It's been a really long stressful wait.

Thanks, becksloane, good to know. I can't imagine how I might have passed this one - but the not knowing is killing me, I even dreamt about it last night.

LRSM or FRSM? I did my LRSM in Dec and like you really not sure how it went. Keeping my pieces on back burner but can't feel I can really settle to a new recital programme.

LRSM. In exactly the same boat. Have started thinking about FRSM, but planning on taking two years over it. I want my written submission to be a humdinger (!) and have started researching already - I really love that side of the qualifications, it's what drew me to the ABRSM rather than Trinity. And, as a disabled performer (i use the term performer loosely), I can't really be marked on my stagecraft. I also like to think that my sight reading is fairly strong.
If I've passed it will be a scrape, and only because the supporting studies are stronger - it wasn't a great recital, though I so enjoyed the journey. I didn't do myself justice in what was a very warm room and suffered from a dry mouth and lip as a result of inevitable nerves too - not good for a cornet player. We'll see. What will be will be.

I so related to your post in that I'm hoping my sight reading is my strong point. My recital had a few hiccups sadly so if anything I think I may have to resit that part. The piano was pretty awful. My teacher was surprised how poor it was and I don't feel it will have done my playing justice but have to go with the flow. Hopefully we will hear in next few days. Well fingers crossed for us both.

Congratulations! Such a relief for you and thanks for posting to let me know I would have wondered. Sadly I did not pass (well I just scraped the quick study but thought I had done much better) as for the rest they didn't like anything at all. I thought my Bach and Brahms were ok and I know I had an issue in the 1st movement of th Beethoven which I felt would fail me but thought I played 2nd and 3rd movements ok so realky quite devasted. I worked really hard and at moment not sure what I'll do. Feedback is always useful of course but did feel it was all very negative to the point I'm left feeling I can't play at all. Guess I'll get over it but as I get older my finger joints are stiffening(bordering on arthtits ok ar moment but not sure how I'll be next year)so quite devasted. Anyway it's good to hear your hard work has paid off do once gain WELL DONE!
