    Hey, what grade are you in the piano??? I also play. You're doing music this year??? Same! Hows it going for you??? What exam board are you guys on???
    Just grade 5 . Doing Grade 6 next year. I'll be playing 4 grade 6 pieces for my A2 recital. I played a grade 7 piece for my AS but it wasn't a recital, it was a recording, and I had MANY goes at it so can't do the same, this yr.

    Well done.
    I tried to ask about my Chemistry predicted grade my tutor. She told me to go to the teacher. The teacher told me to go the tutor. So I don't know it finally. xD Will probably have to go and ask Head of 6th Form.
    I'm sure it'll be fine , that reminds me of the Circular flow model, the cycle never ends . I haven't managed to do any work today, so I feel a bit guilty .

    Ah! Cool. So you're grade 7 standard but have't yet don't the exam??? Thats good! I'm grade 8. What other instruments do you play???
    You were allowed to do a recording?!! Lucky! We had to do a recital and the same this year except the criteria is tougher and its marked more harshly, that being said...didn't know it be marked anymore harshly! Haha. OCR is the exam board from hell lol.
    For our AS recital we had to do 8 minutes of a solo instrument + 4 minutes of either an ensemble or new instrument. I sung for my solo since that is my strongest instrument but did piano for my 4 minutes piece.
    Its pretty much the same this year but a whole different set up. Everything has to be much more specific!

    Nah, I'm Grade 5 standard but managed to learn a grade 7 piece. This year, I have to do 10-15 minutes of playing. The difficulty marks are 6 (out of 60), I'll probably loose 3 of the 6 marks for doing Grade 6 pieces so not that much in the grand scheme .
    My voice is really crap these day. Do you have lessons? I'm taking a gap year so I'll try to get to grade 7 then and learn loads of repertoire. Also, I'll try to get a head start on grade 8 as uni (esp if I get into Cambridge) will demand a lot of time!

    My A2 programme


    Might have to swap the last one for something longer. I'll see...I'm going to sleep now so I'll check in the morning. I had a different programme. But started learning my G6 pieces with piano teacher. I don't want to tell him I've changed my mind so I'm playing my G6 pieces but as said may change the 4th :P

    Come on, it's not a rabbit.
    I remember playing GTA III, IV, Vice City and San Andreas, and it was quite nice. If my brother buys it, I could play when I go home during half term.

    I played III on PC. Rest on PS3. But well, it wasn't like spending days and hours on it. Just when I had time and was bored.
