    So what was the correct answer, Allegro con moto? The score says allegro con brio and I'm sure that wasn't a choice?
    The choices were andante con moto and allegro con brio.

    Was allegro con brio the only 'allegro' option? I remember crossing the allegro option down

    I remeber putting c major but i think i put imperfect cadence :/ I thought it said up to the end of bar 6 or whatever it was and it resolved onto the tonic at the begining of the next bar?

    Hi there,

    I have question...
    Right so the written paper of A2 music has 36 marks with two subject areas to talk about and three pieces plus the two 13 mark applied questions. So for the 36 marker question you have to know 6 points for each subject area within a piece any given piece (eg. Tonality, structure, melody ect.) to make sure you get the full marks. There 7 subject area so that 42 points per piece. Now there are 7 instrumental pieces so that 294 points you have to know to answer any of the question that might be given. Now applied music there is 13 marks so that's 13 points you need to make. There is 5 pieces meaning you need to learn 65 points. That's a grand total of 359 points you need to be able to pick out of the scores to get full marks in the written part. (Plus the question may differ on the applied music so maybe an extra 65 points need to be learnt....)


    Is this really how many point we need to learn? Over 400...?

    Hi I retook the AS exam and will be doing the A2 exam next week.

    You need to learn 3 points with examples for the 36 mark question. You get asked 2 features of 3 setworks so 6 x 2 = 12, 3 x 12 = 36. However you do get the score in the exam so if you are stuck for examples you can always flick through and find some.

    As for the applied works, you don't need to learn one of the pieces as you get given a choice of 3 and only have to answer 2 (there are 5 setworks). It's easier than it sounds remembering 13 points for this question as again you have the score and if you put examples you don't necessarily have to put 13 points down but its advised to just in case. If you have any other questions I'd be happy to answer them.

    Also pleased got an overall A! Full marks in performance which was awesome and pretty high in the exam but only a D in Composition (which was kinda surprising since my teacher gave me full marks for it before sending it off) so that'll prob be remarked. Time for an A2 Music thread soonish...

    Hey! I got an A overall - 87 in my performance (school told me I had 90, but I guess it doesn't matter), 65 in the comp (which was a b) and 106 in the paper, which was an A, so A overall. I was frustrated about the comp but knew it was coming - I got full marks in the composition itself but I didn't have time to write the last 5 points on my sleeve notes so I lost 5 marks on that and that was 25 UMS (sigh)
