- The unexpected is a big cause of nervousness for most of us. Of course, there’s always going to be an element of it in an exam setting – you don’t know which scales or sight reading the examiner might ask you to play, for example – but you can prepare for the format of the exam, so you know what’s coming
- What are they going to ask you to do first?
- What speed should you play your scales at?
- Do you know what your aural tests will involve?
It’s worth asking your teacher, friends or the exam board if you are unsure what the exam may involve other than your set pieces.
