Right then pit guyz i need your advice ....

I can either take Grade 8 in February - March time n then i might not do as well in GCSE's because i will have been concentrating on guitar too much, or i would have to wait to do Grade 8 in October next year.

What should i do?!?!?!

By October you'll be 1/4 of the way through your AS levels (assuming you're taking them, and if you are your GCSEs become completely irrelevant for the rest of your life), which are alot of hard work. However, you have the whole summer holiday to do nowt but play guitar.

October may be wiser.

you should decide whether your capable on doing it WITH your GCSE. Taking it in march wont necessarily mean you'll do bad in your GCSEs, when are you doing GCSE's anyway?

+... if you do it now, you might be able to continue to do diploma, or try for the performers award

Do it next year, While GCSEs aren't hugely important in later life guitar can afford to wait. It depends what you're planning to do at university though. Some places will only give you a place on a course if you have the right GCSE (for example history at Edinburgh requires a foreign language, english and maths or a science GCSEs).

Why is it that whenever you post the thread title turns bold?? but when I post nothing happens.

I've just realised that the the sarcasm gestapo is really a sub-division of the Grammar Nazis. There I bet you dont feel so special now do you?

Naw, we discriminate against all things equally not just bad grammar. If anything they'd be more of a subdivision of us.

Bold title? Unread threads are bold and read threads are not.

Grades first.

I know you'll manage the grade eight, but there's no rush at the moment?

Although, being a grade eight musician you'll have a good prospect of music related careers, grades should come first as a net. You only get free education once, grab hold of it.
