Just that, really.
What time, given the choice, do you prefer for auditions or exams?
Is it true that it's best to be among the first of the day/ morning/ afternoon as the examiner will be fresh? And you don't want to be the last as they'll be tired and wanting to go for lunch/ home. (But maybe the examiner isn't a morning person and will be grumpy so mark more harshly until they've had 4 coffees?)
I know the line is that examiners have to be objective and use the criteria, but they're only human.
Are you a lark or an owl? Would you rather perform when (hopefully) fresh, or do you feel you wouldn't be awake yet and you come to life in the afternoon? On the other hand, then there's longer for nerves to build up in anticipation.
I'm NOT a morning person, and an insomniac. I just wonder whether any advantage to being the first or in the first couple of people would outweigh being tired...on the other hand, as I said, less time for nerves to build up and maybe not quite being awake will lead to less nerves...or I'd just jolt awake of course and have the worst of both worlds. By my body clock I'd prefer one of the last appointments in the afternoon but then the examiner would be tired and sick of hearing the same pieces all day...unless they're an owl too and are just waking up.
Apologies for the stream of consciousness.
What do you think?
