AS Music OCR Revision help?!?!Watch
I'm so unmotivated to revise and I have no clue how the exam is going to look!
I've looked on the OCR website and all the set works are out of date!
Help would be much appreciated!!
I've got the revision guide and that's it, other than bits of info my teacher has given me.
No clue what to expect in the section B. and I'm finding it impossible to memorise and focus!!!!!! At least it's not just me!
The essay is the worst thing for me!
I have just been told to learn the context or the essay but only seem to manage to get10/20 ay tipsss??
for sectin b we were told to just memorise what could come up rather then specifics and for the longer questions just to write in bull it points if we are struggling
I just hate the notating part in section a
I have been writing short basic titles for the essays like "Instrumetation - Boplicity/Koko" and writing 10 comparison points - hoping to high heaven that i will get 2 marks for the comparisons! SOMETHING THAT SEEMS TO CROP UP ALOT is RECORDING TECHNOLOGY! i have made extensive notes on this and there are some good resources on TES about this!
My teacher has given me - during the year as we tackled each piece - a printed sheet with the basics of each piece on, they were from TES - like a teachers resource thing and IT REALLY REALLY REALLY HELPS!!!!!!!!!!! Type in "music as ocr" and it should come up, it has like pictures of the composers on.
And also, can anyone help with transpositions?
Ermm are they the ones where you have to compare the two recordings? In the papers I looked at they give you four bullet points for you to refer to so I would just make two points around each of those, but looking at the mark schemes what they really want is bar numbers!! We have to be super precise I think, ughh it's such a nightmare!
I don't think so, I just noticed from reading the examiners reports and the mark schemes that for section A and B for pretty much every answer you give, so if like describing the harmony or the melody line, it's good to be as specific as possible and give bar numbers cos you can get more marks if you do!! Also I know it's pretty last minute but if any of you are pretty much just trying to madly cram everything now (like me ), I found looking at the examiners reports really useful as it kinda gives some direction of the things they really want to see, so it helps if your feeling stressed in kinda giving your revision some kind of aim, if that makes any sense
How did everyone else do in the other stuff, i.e. composing, performing, etc.?
