Good question.
Its where you perform exceptionally well, almost even above the standards of the grade you're aiming to get. There can also be no mistakes at all (but i made one by completely skipping a bar mad.gif Why did the guy not notice? Shhh biggrin.gif )
And you would receive a merit if you performed really well, and didn't just - how can i explain it - tick the boxes to get the grade, or just scrape the pass mark. There has to be some element of style to it.

So a distinction is like a "Highly Commended" (or higher than that) at dancing
A merit is a "commendable" , "satisfactory" or "pass"

I'm getting it now

Well that is soo good that you can train yourself to go through an exam, especially a grade 7 exam! you must have tutored yourself well, to get distinction!!! biggrin.gif
