I had passed with 72 marks in my LTCL exam, and I am considering whether I should take FTCL exam or not.
I love playing the piano a lot, but I am afraid that I will fail in FTCL exam.
I haven't decided the pieces I would play in the exam yet,
but I want to ask :
Is FTCL exam much more technically demanding than LTCL?
And is FTCL exam hard to be approved?
Thank you:)))

What works did you put in your LTCL programme?

Observing the syllabus, I find some of the LTCL pieces are technically more challenging than some of the FTCL ones.

Nonetheless, technical aspect is just one part.  The musical and communication parts would definitely be seriously evaluated, too.

The approval rate of FTCL is not high, but I suspect it is not single digit % as one may think.

Furthermore, if you have a good teacher, then you'd likely have a much more comfortable time to prepare.

You need not to make up a balanced programme for FTCL.  A specialised or thematic onemay also work.

Good luck.

First of all, thank you for ur suggestions Smiley
I have chosen 3 pieces in my LTCL programme, which is
1.Toccata No. 7 in G, BWV 916
2.Sonata in D minor, Op. 31 No. 2 “Tempest”
3.Andante & Rondo Capriccioso Op. 14
and i am considering to play Bach's Partita in E minor, BWV 830 in FTCL because I like playing bach's pieces a lot.
