Ellie Palmer, 16, from Rocester and a pupil at Abbotsholme School, learnt she achieved distinction in the test, with a mark of 137, just 13 points off perfection.

She is also studying for her grade 8 piano award and is a member of the Royal Northern College of Music.

Ellie said: “I was surprised at the result, because I was really worried about my scales and pieces and had to enlist the support of a friend to help me practice.”

“I have a real passion for music so I am very pleased to get this grade.”
