Last Wednesday daughter took her first ever public exam; ABRSM Grade 1 Music Theory.
I took her to the exam centre and furnished her with the requisite plastic bag filled with pencils, a rubber and her candidate label. I think I was more nervous than her! After depositing her in the exam hall, I went into another room and worried for 40 mins.
Eventually she came out.
"How did it go?" I asked.
"Great!" she said, "All the questions were ones I like. I think I've got at least 90%"
