My grade 8 is due to sit this session. I had to ask for week 4 because her violin teacher insisted she did her violin exam in week 3 and she's not available for a few dates in weeks 1 & 2. We are only just getting our heads round the aural (which I've to cover for the violin teacher as well). 1 of her pieces is just not quite there and her scales need work.
And guess what?
The ABRSM have given us week 1. Not even the end of week 1, but the Wed.
She has 2 more lessons left. It couldn't be any worse.
