As students may be aware. A grading can be conducted every three months if a student is training regular. 

However, if a student only does once a week or less, then they can be waiting up to 6 months.
However, these dates are only provisional and you will only be allowed to grade when you are deemed ready by Sensei.
Please note though, that if you do feel like you are ready, then inform Sensei and bring in you license and last grading sheet.
