did anyone just take GCSE music??Watch
i'm guessing that 75% overall is an A...ill be very happy getting an A...
one of the probs is that edexcel never produced a real syllabus and our teacher didn't teach us the right stuff
oh well... thats enough music for my life! not doing it for As defnately heheh
im doing AS music and on 1 of our last lessons last week we did some of your exam for practice! and i thought it was really hard and i got sooo much wrong, but i wouldnt worry because last year when i took the music paper, i thought i had messed up big time but i still managed to get an A*, so i dont know what i actually got in the paper but im sure i did very badly because i got full marks in coursework and practicals too so i think i only needed to get about 40% to get an A*!
that is one of hte most reassuaring things i've heard in a long time
i think i have done better than 50%... but barely it was a really tough paper and i'm getting a copy of it so that i can get my piano teacher to get me the full model answers... czu we dont have the mark scheme yet... my practicals are all like 90% and i think my coursework is somewhere at 96% if i'm not mistaken... then again our teacher is really **** and i doubt that our marks will stand! hahaha
all i can do is pray that i get the a* on the 21st...
i do really enjoy performing and the course has allowed me to fulfil one of like my dreams... to produce a cd
i was the vocalist on a heavy metal song that i composed and i had to create a whole new voice for myself which is like really deep rigid... don't know how better to explain it. hehe if u wanna listen to it i could send it to u... i'm quite proud of it hahaha
u have to present a score so that the examiner-teacher can compare ur playing with how it is supposed to sound... they should of course be qualified enough to determin that...
in my opinion, it isn't edexcel that is ****e, its the teachers... the course is hard for teachers to balance though, with coursework and practicals adding up to 60%... therefore it is logical to spend more time on that, but teachers often overstep that.
in my case, alot of coursework was to be done over holidays which worked fine i gues... the problem was just that this being the first year where our school did Edexcel, the teacher didn't know how or what exactly to teach... she had 3 past papers. we did one during the course, one as a year 10 exam and one as a mock exam. can't blame the teacher for that since she couldn't obtain any others...
oh well i'm tired haha
Yea sure Ben if want to send me your compostion id love to hear it!
