Does anyone happen to know of good revision materials or the written exam.
In addition to this I also need something that can help me to improve my aural skills.
Also if there is any decent work on my setworks could you also inform me of these.
My set works being:
Brandenburg Concerto No.2, 1st Movement - Bach
Symphony No. 5, 1st Movement - Beethoven
Violin Concerto, 1st Movement - Mendelssohn
Piano Concerto in G Major, all movements - Ravel
Many thanks to whomever can contribute to this.

Hi! I'm guessing that you are doing the WJEC board, as they are the set pieces I did for AS and I'm currently studying the Ravel
We got provided with notes that WJEC sent to our college so if you ask your teacher they may have them, and they are REALLY helpful.
I think that the best way to improve your aural skills and to get to know your set works is to listen, listen, listen. Listen for all the sequences and things, particularly in the Brandenburg concerto. You don't realise how much you pick up just by listening and you soon get to know the piece inside out. Also listen to as much other classical music as you can. I recommend downloading spotify as you can pop in the name of a composer and it brings up loads of stuff for you to listen to
I know when I did the exam last year I couldn't find any revision materials other than the ones given by WJEC but I shall have a look to see if I can find any stuff for the Ravel and will let you know if I do
Hope some of that helped!

I know it's probably a bit too late (sorry!) but I found the 'Cambridge Companion to Ravel' really helpful, especially as I'm doing MU6(B) - the extra essay on Ravel.
