Exam or no more exam?

May 30, 2017

Time flies, my first one was May 2011 then another one 2 years after that, and again in October 2014.    I used to do forecast of result but after the bad experience of last exam I’m not going to forecast the outcome this time.

2 of the pieces are popular exam picks except Bach’s Chorale No 1,
Pierre Fournier transcribed Bach’s song into a beautiful piece.   Most people pick Bach’s Prelude for Suite No 1 for unaccompanied cello.    This one is so popular it’s just hard to draw examiner’s attention.


I had to do the exam this year using the old 2010-2015 syllabus or else I’ll have to work on the new 2016 syllabus.


Will I go for more exam after this?    I really don’t know.

PS: this was drafted a year ago!
