I agree with the skipping although DS would be very unhappy that all of his G2 effort was in vain. It is, of course, not in vain but boys do prefer quantity over quality!
Can someone explain what this means please:
SV At least one month before chosen exam date, which must be outside Periods A, B & C
(28 days for UK online entries) - UK & Ire Any day(s) outside the dates for Periods A, B & C listed above
(excl. Sundays, Banks Holidays and Tue 28 July)
Tipsy, to all senior schools or organisations that matter, it is not the quantity of music grades that counts, rather, it is the 'quality' of the grade that they are looking at. A Grade 2 Distinction for example, stands out better than say, a Grade 4 Pass.
Look at ABRSM's exam entry form. They're all self explanatory. Dates of exams are divided into 'Periods'. See below:
