Exam again

October 21, 2014

OK let me recap what I did before, my first in May 2011 second in May 2013 and the recent one just last week.

I should have chosen August/September rather than September/October, the extra time didn’t really help. How well you prepared sometime doesn’t really count in exam result. Exam is exam after all.

My teacher said my pieces aren’t the popular choices, exam is like torture I like to make it enjoyable. Pieces from Bach I could practically play it everyday for the rest of my life.

How did I do this time, it’s forecast moment.

Scale: I did a bit better than last time, I guess I’ll get 14 (pass).

Sight Reading: I was given 3 lines with an easy start on G then Tenor clef from mid-way, OMG I probably would get 12 if he’s mean! I hate tenor clef.

Aural: For whatever reasons the examiner really has rushed it on me, I’m normally pretty good at singing the tune I’ll be lucky this time to get 12.

3 pieces: I think I did as good or slightly better than last time (got 80 out of 90) but I think this examiner is stricter so I’ll be lucky to get 75. My teacher said for Bach it’s a matter of taste, his taste matters not mine.

My forecast is therefore 113.

Timing of the exam was also bad at 9:17am I had no way to warm up at the little shop there. This could explain why the examiner has rushed it on me and I hope it wasn’t due to my chatting with him at the start or whatever inappropriate that I have said.

To reward myself I shopped new strings for myself and a new 3/4 cello for him right afterwards
