This is an exam that I've been putting off for years.

Does anyone have any suggestions to what I can do to learn the course, say from scratch (I have basic knowledge but too basic)?

Thanks very much!

Yes ABRSM

I've got their massive pink book which I'm working through slowly, but hopefully it'll only take a few months of studying until I can take the exam.

Thanks very much I really appreciate it and congrats for getting into Oxford, I always open those little UCAS spoiler forms.

Work through the past papers. I generally did that and was getting averages of 80s towards the exam. However the exam on the day was harder than all my past papers and i only passed by one mark lol.

read the grade VI-VIII theory blue book to consolidate what you know. a good sight read of bach is always good for the theory too.

Just read the pink book, do as many past papers as you can and if you have a music teacher get them to run through some stuff with you. It really isn't that hard. Good luck!

I only did grade 1 and 2 theory before I took Grade 5. What I did was, a couple of days before the exam, I went on some website (I don't remember which one), and noted down all the important looking stuff on a couple of A4 sheets. And then I just memorised all the stuff I wrote down.

I passed, so I guess it kinda helped.
