Ready To Grade?

Next week is grading week. Every month a surprisingly small number of students go for their next promotion. A lot of the time we hear this is because they decide that although they may have all necessary tags, they think they do not know their techniques well enough or that by deferring their test to next month they will do a better job.

It’s like putting off getting your Bachelors qualification, until you have a Masters knowledge of the subject matter.

If you don’t pass your test you lose nothing! In fact you still gain. You have had the benefit of an instructor watching you perform your techniques and then give feedback on what to improve. This makes you even more likely to pass your test when you next take it.

If you have enough tags on your belt, don’t hesitate. Get up and show us what you can do.
