Just found my theory results online. Two adult pupils, a Grade 4 and a Grade 5. Both got distinctions - the Grade 5 pupil took Grade 3 in the summer and has just got 99 for Grade 5!

Congratulations Jenny!  I've had 2 grade 5s - one distinction and one good pass - both results commensurate with the effort that each put in. At least they both passed and can now pursue the G6 practical of their choice.

Congratulations Jenny and Hedgehog. 

 

Mine’s a grade 5 too - a non-keyboard player, who came to me having reached grade 5 on a practical instrument, and knowing no theory whatsoever. I mean none.  Well ... could attempt the names of notes on the treble stave on a good day, maybe. 

 

Delighted that said student now has a merit at grade 5 theory, and likewise, can proceed with practical grades.

Thanks for letting us know they are out. Just checked, and mine (daughter as it happens) got 97 for grade 5. Whoop, whoop! (But it has become easier of late....)

Definitely easier. My student got 100 for G5! He didn't believe me!

So he must have known the meaning of "zart", which mine didn't. Neither did I, but now neither of us will forget. And I don't think I've ever come across it in music....

My grade 5 got 84 which I am very happy with as he had a tendency to 'forget' to actually read the question!

I'm so impressed by my Grade 5 getting 99 - he started piano lessons with me last September, knowing nothing at all about theory.

I had two grade 5's - a 99 and 96. It's easier to get high marks without the melody writing question. I've had nothing but distinctions since they dumped it.

Brahms, Cradle Song (marked Zart bewegt). Quite rare, though.

Ah - so that was the unfamiliar one that baffled my student!
