    I think I really didn't do too well.. The section b was good as it was predicted but section A I found difficult and think I messed up. Based on the previous really high grade boundaries i'm worried. I really wanted an a* as well

    you'd need 66/80, same as me!
    You actually only need 58!! I've just used the edexcel mark converter to get your UMS marks, and then used the grade boundaries and you would need 94ums marks which is 58 raw marks! I hope you've got it!

    It's a Bhajan I think. I put bharan...

    Dynamics in the Handel? I had fun trying to answer that one. But otherwise a good essay question.

    Yay that's what I put

    The sections? I said intro for the first one and when the trumpet comes in the head but really unsure I revised like 3hours for that I had too much bio to do
    So did I, and then solo for the next one but tbh there are like 6 solos so probably not right.

    If most of us found it fairly difficult then the grade boundaries shouldn't be that high. Hopefully we'll get a repeat of 2015 and it'll be 70/80 for A*

    What notes did people fill in for Grace? Iput the same start and end notes as the last and first notes in the previous and next bars (if that makes sense) with the other notes in a descending order.

    sameeeee, when they do those questions the notes you have to fill are always next ot eachother, they never make it hard

    Yeah, that was my logic but my friends said that they thought the first note was a pitch below the previous one so I wasn't sure.
