Winter 2019 dance exam results

Winter 2019 dance exam results

After a long wait, our Winter 2019 dance exam results arrived in January 2020!

Many congratulations to all the candidates as everyone passed!

RAD Ballet exam results

Of the 85 RAD exam candidates, 48 gained a Merit, 29 gained Distinction, and 6 received their Class Award, (there were also 2 absentees). The Merit marks were generally high this session with many just missing the Distinction by a couple of marks. Most of the students sitting exams at the higher levels gained Distinction.

We have a special mention for the students who gained over 80% for their Distinctions:

  • Primary Grade: Orla Martin 82%; Aysha Pollock 81%
  • Grade 1: Eleisha McKendrick 80%; Heidi Russell 83%; Laura Taylor 81% 
  • Grade 2: Sienna Brown 80%; Lawrence Bremner 87%
  • Grade 5: Anna Bremner 84%; Ailey Meikle 88%; Ailish Ogilvie 86%
  • Grade 5 Solo Performance Award: Grace Evans 81%, Ailish Ogilvie 86%
  • Grade 7: Eve Hanson 84%

Congratulations to the 5 students who gained their first Vocational level exam, Intermediate Foundation, at the Regional session in Stirling. Overall they gained 3 Merits and 2 Distinctions. 

  • Inter Foundation: Hannah Firth 81%; Abbie Garmany 83%
ISTD Tap exams

We had 19 candidates sit their ISTD tap exams. Overall our tap exam candidates gained 2 Pass, 12 Merit, and 6 Distinctions. We have special mention for those gaining over 80%...

  • Primary Grade: Orla Martin 95%; Aysha Pollock 97%
  • Grade 1: Laura Taylor 87%; Niamh McDonald 83%; Maria McKendrick 87%
  • Grade 4: April Beattie 84% 

Unfortunately the marking over our past few sessions of ISTD tap exams has been quite inconsistent with some candidates even being marked incorrectly this session, consequently we submitted an official complaint to the exam board. The outcome was that 2 candidates marks had been submitted incorrectly by the examiner this session, and will be replaced with the correct results, and a reassurance that the examiners are trained to mark accurately.

BATD acro exams

We held our first ever Winter session for acrobatics exams. Huge congratulations to the 45 candidates for excellent results. Overall they gained 1 Commended and 44 Highly Commended, which is the highest band. The acro exams do not currently carry points but use written comment sheets from the examiner.

You can view a full gallery of photos of all our ballet and acro exam candidates on our CSBS Facebook page. We now have only a few weeks until the Spring exam session in March!
