Hello,

 

I think I've got this, but please can anyone just confirm.

 

The syllabus overlap means that 2017-18 pieces are actually valid until 31 May 2019? So since the spring exam period (period A) isn't as late as May, more like until mid Apr, valid until the end of that period?

 

Is there any restriction on taking different grades within the same syllabus? Eg if I took grade 4 this June/ July, grade 5 in winter or some time in 2018 and grade 6 in spring 2019, all from 1027-18 syllabus, is that allowed?

 

Thanks!

I have held an examiner Special Visit in past years in May, and a local piano teacher has sometimes entered 'last ditch' candidates for that session as it absolutely the latest they can play the old pieces. So it is possible to play them right up to the end of May if you can find a Special Visit to pay them at.

 

There is no restriction about how many exams you can take with the same syllabus - just as well, because we had a woodwind syllabus which lasted for six years. :o

You could even take grade 4, 5 and 6 in the same session if you really wanted. :o
