Just before the summer holidays, Julius had his ABRSM exam for grade 2 violin. And finally we got the results!
I was pretty certain that he had passed. From talks with the UMA people here at his school, only very few kids flunk this exam. Most of those are really not into playing an instrument and are basically forced by their parents, hence they screw up the test.
But Julius did not only pass but also got the ‘with merit’ thingie, which means he got more than 120 points (from 150). Next level would be reaching 130 points. Let’s see, maybe next time.
