I agree. Lucas should commended on his progress but in my opinion as an RPT, I would not recommend he attempt the exam. I believe the unisons would not pass. As for your ranting at A443 Bill, I find it distasteful.

Enjoyable performance! I liked your interpretation of the movement a lot. I'm still working on it myself and I have a lot to learn from the way you did it.
