Could-a should-a would-a.
The main thing to remember in doing an exam is that YOU did it. Nobody else did. That’s an achievement. And it doesn’t matter if you get an A, B or C. You did the best that you could on the day. Be proud of yourself and give yourself a big pat on the back. Yes, you could have performed that tricky bit better, yes you slowed down towards the end, yes you forgot what key the piece goes into in the middle. These things happen. By doing an exam and putting yourself through the whole process, you’re learning valuable lessons. And… it will be so much easier the next time around!
