    Hi guys, I just had my grade 8 exam today! 1st of all, I was late - I think the examiner had a bad impression of me and possibily put this impression on my exam! Well so yeah, scales went ok, one scale I meant to do melodic but did harmonic- damn! My first piece had lots of wrong notes and stuff, so did 2nd - a lil bit, but last one was ok I think.
    Aural test and sight reading I was never good at!
    Ahhh- failing it.
    Do you guys know when will you get the results?
    Fingers crossed I will pass lol

    Have you tried AURALBOOK? It's an app for Android and iPhone/iPad users. It's a really great app for studying your aural skills and developing your listening skills. I recommend it to anyone taking an upcoming music exam. It's really easy to use and I know it helped me on my exams. I think you'll like it too--it's a unique app and it gives you great feedback. Plus, it's free! AURALBOOK knows exactly what to test you on too so you'll feel super prepared for your exam. I felt confident and ready when I went into mine.
