  1. How well it matches the technical standard of the relevant grade for the RIAM Local Centre piano syllabus 

  1. Interest and appeal of the composition, especially for the young pianist. 

For earlier grades (up to Grade I) applicants may consider arranging familiar tunes suitable for younger players.
