Haven't looked at grade 8 pieces yet, and unlikely to do so for some time. My daughter has only recently chosen her grade 7 pieces, having taken grade 6 at Christmas. She's in the lower 6th, so older than your daughters if they are in years 11 and 9. She's looking at universities, but not conservatoires.
