Suspecting those 5/4 bars were supposed to be the usual 4/4?

And hoping your A-levels went well…

Not 5/4, but 9/8…

Thanks for the corrections, ABC makes my brain hurt D: My profile needs updating as I finished wrestling my A levels last year and am now at university… Thanks for the good wishes though 🙂
