I'm taking my grade 8 practical exam soon and need some help. Does anyone know if I will be asked to play just the scales set for grade 8 or will all the previous 1-7 scales be included aswell?

Thankfully, just the ones that are on the list! What instrument do you play?

I play the guitar but haven't taken a music exam in a few years. Typically I've spent ages practising the pieces but have left everything else to the last minute.

As is often the way! I have been branded a weirdo by my violin teacher for telling her that I love scales! I could play them all day! Good luck with your exam anyway. I take it that it is in the next few days???

Scales and arpeggios are definitely just the ones set for grade 8.

Scales are easy points to push you towards a merit/distinction so practice them slowly a lot between now and your exam and increase the speed bit by bit, a metronome really helps with this.

Good luck
