    I think someone said that the E was Edexcel. Not sure about the music grades but I'd imagine you just go with the most recent one.

    Just put in the last grade you did for each instrument. You can also put in theory grades.

    E does stand for Edexcel (stupid system grrrr) and you should enter your most recent grade UNLESS
    a) you've got to G7 or G8 cos u get points for 6, 7 and 8 so if you've done them it's worth adding them in
    b) you didn't do great in your most recent exam - e.g. you got a distinction in ur G5 but then only jus passed ur G6 in which case (obviously only if ur applying for music or scholarships or something where they care other than that your a "well rounded person who is dedicated to your hobby") you can put in the previous one as well

    I'd just put your most recent grades for each subject, both theory and practical, and I'd put distinction, merit or pass rather than the mark.

    Depends what you got, and if you want them to know. I put in all my grades 1-8, because they were all distinctions. :cool:

    I think this approach is slightly OTT. They're not going to care about a grade 1 distinction if you also have a grade 8 distinction on the same instrument are they?

    it says to only put down your most recent grade. also, although you get points for 6, 7 and 8, i don't think it means you can add them all up - i have 6, 7 and 8 on two instruments, but i only put down the highest. at teh time that was one 8 and one 7, and i put the second 8 in the "pending exams" box because i was about to take it. and put your theory in as well because you get points for that.
