I played that for my Grade 5. Takes me back.

As you're using a thumb pick the bass is quite strong and in danger of overpowering the melody. Try mixing the technique - my tutor at Grade 7 had me play the melody using rest stroke to project the sound at the same time as using free stroke for the bass notes.
