It's Over!!

      My exam is over, and I feel like it went well! I didn't get 'stuck' anywhere and I had 40 minutes left to proof my work.  It was just me and one other person taking an exam, so we had a nice cozy setting.  Margaret has a huge, furry black cat with a long fluffy tail. His name is Max, and he wandered around while we worked. For some reason I found it comforting to hear him crunching on his food once in awhile. :)

    After I finished, I had the privilege of touching and playing a few notes from my favourite piano make ever- Steinway & Sons.  What a gorgeous, clear tone!  Too bad I didn't have time to stay or I might have forgotten why I was there. :)

    Now to wait the 4-6 weeks before my exam mark is posted online. At this point, I'm just glad it's in the past!  It's been nice to have a bit more free time this evening- for once I don't have to have my nose buried in my theory book!

     Thanks everyone for the well wishes and encouragement!!

I am glad to hear your exam went well. When will the results be announced? In the meantime, you can have a great Christmas and holiday celebration!

Congrats Leah! Keep going, oh yes you can.

The results should be online in 4 weeks (so said my paper). Then in about 6 weeks I should be able to download the actual exam and view it for myself.

Congratulations! I'm sure it's a relief to have it behind you, and that you also feel an immense sense of accomplishment from having accomplished your goal.

Congrats :) I just finished my exam this afternoon. I found a couple of questions in the music analysis a little weird, did you notice too?

Leah@Home And Heartstrings said...

Feebit, yes I did! I thought the question about which key it was in was very hard to answer...it started in G major but almost immediately moved to e melodic minor. I ended up putting G as my primary answer and then putting the e in parentheses...Then in one of the chords we had to analyse there was no 5th....so yes, the music analysis was very odd over all...I guess something had to be hard, eh? Hope you did well too!
