I am currently in the process of doing my first real composition for GCSE music (even though I'm in Year 11 :/) and I don't really know what to write on the written commentary. Our teacher told us that all we needed to do was write little bits about each point in the song and maybe include screenshots of little bits of the score but not the whole score, and talk about our chord progression, structure etc. However I've been looking online and the resources I've found have often talked about a brief (although a couple were from 2003 so I'm not sure). We've never received a brief and I don't even know what Area of Study my composition relates to. Also, the resources I found said we had to talk about how we have met the brief and the process we went through in composing the song, but our teacher never told us any of this. She's a pretty awful teacher though.

Our exam board is Edexcel and any help would be greatly appreciated

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (638)
Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (805)
Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (377)
I think there is a better option than the ones suggested (let us know in the thread!) (86)
