New Remotely-assessed Performance Grades in ABRSM
Hello, what is your take on the new additional option for Grades awarding by ABRSM where kids can play four pieces and be awarded a grade. My kid has reached grade 8 and was supposed to sit this in March. Now she is delighted by the option not to have to demonstrate scales, arpeggios, aural or do sight reading by just opting to play 4 pieces of a very well known and loved repertoire. I would be glad for her to do this but did wonder if this grade will have an equal weight as practical exam as to a natural performer the new option is just joy. Kids who have to work on all the scales and keep their head for aural & sight reading in my view have worked much harder but our teacher thinks that there will be no difference in evaluating a grade 8 candidate for any future options according to the type of exam they sat with ABRSM. What are your views please.
Firstly, congratulations to your daughter for reaching grade 8 , that is respectable!
I wouldn't worry about the difference between the two exams.
