Exam roundup - Summer 2012

Post by Alan Green » August 23rd, 2012, 12:09 pm

Yes, it's blow your own trumpet time.

Congratulations to my students:

James - aged 9 - he's studied under me for two years

and Poppy - aged 11 - she's studied under me for three years

Both of whom took their London College of Music Classical Guitar Step 1 Exam in July. Both scored 91% - Distinctions.

And me. Yeah - I've been doing some studying for the past few years for a BA (Hons) in Humanities with Music at the Open Uni in England. I got a 2.1

Sorry to be ignorant, Alan.

What does 2.1 signify?

University Degree gradings for Batchelors' Degrees - top grade is a First, then the Seconds are broken down into 2.1 and 2.2 - Upper and Lower Seconds. Finally there's a Third, the lowest pass grade.
