You are now looking at an official Violin Fifth Grader. Be proud.
Yes, I got my results last Saturday, and sad to say, I passed by a mere 10 marks. No merit, no distinction, but still. I didn’t fail. My teacher said I did OK, as most students got 100++ whilst I got 110. No need to brag, I can see that, but I’m contented, at the very least.
The examiner, Malcolm Goldring’s writing on his comment slip was absolutely horrible and I couldn’t make out most of what he had written, but I strained my eyes enough to understand that he was mainly criticizing about my tonic rhythm or something like that, and the dynamics. Well, at least he said my intonation was good, and his conclusion was ‘You played a secure pass-well done’, and that alone was actually enough to boost my spirits for the day.
Though I don’t think Grade 5 is going to be a piece of cake. -sigh-
Mayo -smug- out.
