Apologies if this has come up before, but I was wondering which exam board everyone uses? I'm doing my Grade 8 later this year, and as I haven't done any theory exams yet, Trinity would be the best option. Also it mentioned in the syllabus that instead of scales, you can do one of the Arban studies, or a brass band excerpt. This sounds great to me as I'm not too keen on scales, but is Trinity as well respected as ABRSM? I did my first few piano exams with ABRSM and then switched to Trinity and found the atmosphere a lot friendlier and the pieces more appealing. Any comments?
