    Heya everyone!

    Does anybody know approximately what the grade boundaries are for GCSE Music?

    I know they change every year, but does anybody know what they were for last year (on the Edexcel course)

    Because I'm predicted A/A* and I want to know what I roughly need to get to achieve it.

    Thanks

    Bloody high is the answer.

    I did it when I was 14 and apparently it was 93% for an A*, this was AQA.

    I had all the official boundaries at the time, 145/180 for an A? Something like that. Then 129 for a B.

    Just ensure you get 100% in your compositions and try for it in your performance. It's not difficult but requires a ton of work. That way you can afford to slip up slightly in the Listening test.

    Throughout secondary school, I felt Music was really patronising for those who'd already had lessons but must've been tough for those starting afresh. But the way GCSE Music is done it must be impossible for those without external tuition to hit the top grades; Grade 4/5 standard's needed to hit the top marks for performance.
