This one is so dependent on the association/dojo it's almost impossible to generalise. However, I've yet to hear of any sensei who would be put out if you asked their opinion of how you're progressing in your aikido and this should give you an idea of when you'll next grade.

If your current dojo is of the "when the spirit moves" style and all information is handed down from on high with little input from the students, just finesse the beggers with respectful questions and attentive listening.

Good luck in the grading (I personally avoid the things at all costs)
