I always give my pupils the choice of exam board when they approach me about exams, and every time they've picked Rockschool.

Great Work.
I'm very happy to have found Rockschool, my pupils are so enthusiastic about the pieces and enjoyed their exams. Never before have I had a pupil text me after an exam, 'The exam was GREAT!'.
I'll be using more rockschool books in future as they are very popular with my students.
