grade levels

As Lani said - grade levels are all over the map.

Can we add comments or specifics?

    It's somewhat useful in the early years, as teachers can choose the level that is appropriate for each candidate, but hardly fair as you get to the upper levels. There are pieces from the grade 2 syllabus that are harder than the gr. 4 - and they are from the same book - that's just plain irritating.

    I agree that the levels are puzzling. Granted, everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. The ABRSM book has a very different selection. Has anyone ever made a comparison? Also, I notice that there does not seem to be a memory requirement in that Syllabus, nor in the Trinity College Syllabus. I'll send everyone a copy of these Syllabi in their emails.
