  1. My teacher is extremely proud of me and gave me a big hug telling me it’s a great achievement, especially considering I’m an adult and have only been dancing a few years. The only person disappointed in me is me. I’m like that with everything though, constantly beating myself up about every little mistake in life. But I’m feeling much better about it today, it is an improvement on last time and a grade higher as well. I’ll be doing Grade 6 and Intermediate next. (We don’t do IF at my school.) I’ve already been attending the intermediate class for a while just for extra training but I won’t be ready for that exam any time soon. I’ll be starting grade 6 from scratch next month which I’m excited about.
  2. Aww brilliant, well done. And grade 6 is a high level as well! Thats the good thing about these exams - we can take our results and use them to help us focus on certain areas to improve on next time 😊
  3. Results are in! Sadly I missed out on the Distinction, but I was only 3 marks away so a very strong Merit. Feeling pretty disappointed to be honest. I know it’s a good result especially considering I’ve only been dancing a few years. I just really wanted that score of 75. Maybe next time.
  4. @Balletlife4me excellent, glad to hear it 😊 thank you 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻
  5. How did you do? Hope the results were happy ones 😊
  6. Massive well done @cavycapers 😍 such brilliant news xx
  7. Of course it’s also important! Fingers crossed for you too 🤞🏻😊
  8. Massive congratulations to your DD! Which region are you in? Do you know when the results came in relation to your area target date?
  9. Ooh are the results due on the 7th not out yet? ☹️ Mine are due the 9th and was hoping they’d be a couple of days early like my last ones. 🤞🏻
  10. I do understand that, and I’ve definitely improved an awful lot regardless of what the results say. I just feel like I need to prove something to myself. I want to know that my efforts are paying off. I want to know I’m doing well. That must sound really silly I guess.
  11. I wish I had started when I was young. I did my first ever ballet class when I was 26! Now I’m 30 and have got a good merit at grade 4, been on pointe for 2 years and just sat my grade 5. Very determined to do well! Very proud of myself for what I’ve achieved so far, but I’m not finished yet - I have my heart set on doing as many exams as possible and maybe even becoming a teacher one day. Ballet has become my whole life and, while I can’t particularly make up for the missed time, I just want to achieve as much as I can. Ballet makes me so happy ❤️
  12. Welcome to the forum! Which exam did you sit? Finger crossed for us all!
  13. Fingers crossed! It’s happened before, by a day or two 🤞🏻 Losing my mind now. I’ve replayed the exam a hundred times in my head. Sometimes I think I’ve done really well, other times I think I’ve messed it up. I just want to know if my efforts have paid off or not 😭😍
  14. Here is the link to the page with the results date. You just need to choose RAV (at an RAD venue), AEC (your own studio) or headquarters https://www.royalacademyofdance.org/exams/timings-sets-and-dates/
  15. I used to love the old style 1st position split sole canvas but I can’t for the life of me find them anymore. I think they may have stopped making them ☹️
