    In the Developing Musical Understanding section of my Edexcel exam, am I given a score for the second section, where you have to write the essays? I know you get a skeleton score for section A, but are you given any material for section B, or do you just have to memorise every score?

    You aren't given a score in the second half no We've been told just to remember bar numbers and key points for Structure, Tonality, Harmony etc. I recommend using cue cards with bar numbers written on them and what is going on in that bar Also, write lots of essays in practice if your teacher isn't doing those with you. We get given an 18 point and 10 point essay each week as well as the occasional Bach chorale..

    Hope that helps!
