Anybody ready for Friday? I don't know why I didn't drop music. My teacher is horrible and has made me hate the subject.

• Idek how to study for coursework. I can't tell the difference between Classical and Romantic music.

•I can't fill out a skeleton score because we've never done that.

•Don't know the difference between the Maqam and Iqa'at.

•I wasn't taught about Latin American music, and for Chinese and Japanese my teacher printed out an article from the internet, told us to summarize it, and then told us to listen to the instruments online at home.

Hopefully grade boundaries are like how they were in 2016 and 2015, and I pray my compositions and performances are fire, otherwise I'm failing. Literally.

In 2016, 38 or 39 out of 70 would get you an A on paper 1. In 2015, 39 out of 70 would get you an A on paper 1. However, now that courseworks have been included, this may change.

How did you find the paper? I failed haha.

Hey. What did you guys get for CIE iGCSE Music? I got a B - which I was pleased with on account of the fact I literally guessed almost all of the listening paper, apart from the set work bit. How on earth are we meant to identify all these obscure instruments for 'World Music'!? We weren't taught this. Ha ha - at least it's all over now.
