My dd sat this at St Clement Danes this afternoon. I am full of praise for the environment they created for her and us, the parents. Sixth formers served us tea and coffee in the dining room and lots of staff were on hand to welcome and support the children. A very positive experience all round. Anyone from last year know how long the yes/no letters take?

You will not get told if your child has not been successful in obtaining an audition.

So you just have to wait and wait...

Hi all

Was just reading this thread.

DAOGROUPIE: It caught my eye especially as my DS was at Clement Danes too taking the music exam.

Have to agree with your comments, but was very disappointed by a particular group of parents who decided to be very loud outside the exam area ... thought that was VERY inconsiderate of the poor children trying to concentrate in the hall.

Anyway moan over ... lol.

Anyone happen to know exactly when the practical exam is please?

Thanks

Actually since I posted this my dd has sat the music test at DAO and I was even more impressed. We were basically treated as guests of the Music Department. As we walked through the playground to the Music Centre students in the playground called out good luck which I found very touching. The Director of Music came and spoke to us all personally in a very calm chatty manner and the children were in three different rooms with very helpful sixth formers.

I did notice the parents chatting loudly outside at Clement Danes and was suprised that nobody came out and asked them to stop. At DAO very few parents knew each other. At Clement Danes there were great gaggles of them who seemed to have been mates for years

i too was impressed with the organisation and way we were treated at dame alice owen's on the music exam day. my dd came out with a smile and it was a good start to the 3 day run of exams she had to face. it made her less nervous going in to the verbal reasoning and english/maths on saturday.

when will we know about the music call backs this week? does anyone have previous experience? is it by letter or telephone call?

My niece got through last year. The letter arrived on the Tuesday morning and she was given a time for the following Friday. Everyone gets a letter pass or fail. The pass mark is 46 and above. We will return from the HBS exam to the letter!
