    Wait so can the 10-marker definitely be bullet points (i.e. Not continuous prose)?

    As far as I can see the specification says both 10 markers and 18 markers can be written in note form and continuous prose. This is what the spec says:

    3 Section B:
    Investigating
    Musical Styles
    (28 marks)
    Candidates will choose to extend one of the AS areas of study and
    answer a two-part question on it.
    The questions (10 and 18 marks each) prompt candidates to
    identify and/or compare and contrast given musical features from
    the selected set works and comment on how these features help to
    place the work in a social and historical context.
    Answers may be in note form or continuous prose.

    Attached is also an example of a full marks 10 marker and 18 marker from the Examiners Report which is formed from bullet points so it's a good shout.

    Yeah, so I wrote with the Re-used 4-note motif that it was Inverted, Played in different Instruments, used in an ascending sequence. In the latter question which mentioned it, I mentioned that it was split into three-note cells and inverted. Probably, one of those inverted was wrong, likely the first. What did you put?

    The links, I did Modal Harmonies, Antiphony, Polyphony

    Oh sweet, phrygian is a type of imperfect cadence so hopefully both imperfect and phyrigian will get mark!
