Final examinations take place once a year during the month of March. As scary as it may first seem, we like to see these examinations as the culmination of the hard work invested both by our students as well as their teachers. Simply put, a celebration of achievement.
Yes, final examinations will be graded by a jury of between 3 to 6 members and the grade average will determine whether or not the student is ready to proceed to the next level or to graduate his/her program. Yes, final examinations are serious and yes, final examinations can be stressful for both student, parent and teacher.
But remember, every student upon entering the examination room will start his/her final exams with the maximum score of 100, how wonderful! Whether or not the jury ultimately hears reason to maintain or to lower the score over the course of the examination is in the student’s own hands.
Good luck to all participants and make memorable music!
