    I'm unsure what to include on my application in terms of music grades. I have Grade 7 oboe, but switched exam boards from ABRSM to Trinity for this exam. If that doesn't make sense, I have:

    ABRSM Grades 1-6 Oboe
    Trinity Grade 7 Oboe
    (I'm also taking Trinity Grade 8 oboe in December - do I put this as pending?)

    Some places have been saying to just include the highest grade, so would I put my Grade 8 on there, or Grade 7 and Grade 6 because they're different boards? As Trinity and ABRSM are different qualifications should I put down the highest grade I have in each? Or just one?

    Just the highest counts in terms of points, so if I were you, I'd just put "grade 8 - pending"
