Basically, learn 3 pieces parrot fashion, a few scales and chords but also know how to play them as a broken chord (or arp as I would have previously called them.)
That's the thing...
Learn to play a few pieces "parrot fashion" and it won't work in your favour - the examiner will be looking for some degree of 'expression' even if it's rudimentary.
He's not gonna be expecting Alfred Brendel at grade 2. Parrot fashion musicality is fine at this level. Like if it says 'P' you play soft etc - that's all that is required.
