    Hi all. Curious to know dos anyone ever fail a piano exam due to the sight reading part? I feel my scales and pieces are to a good standard but my sight reading is horrible. And the exam is tomorrow! It's grade 6 RIAM.

    Sight reading is only worth 10 marks out of 100 so is highly unlikely that you would fail if your pieces/scales are good.

    Thank you for the answer, that's great news!

    The breakdown of how marks are allocated should be up on the academy website. To be honest I have never come across anyone who failed. Even though I threaten my students with this when they get lazy I don't know if it ever happens! :-)
