How did everybody find music? I thought the paper had some easy parts like Moby and Handel, but had some hard parts too like Chopin and Schoenberg. I bet 1/100 people did the Ragdesh essay...Hopefully the grades will be around:
44/80 -C
51/80 -B
62/80 -A
71/80 -A*
Fingers crossed

Found most of it quite good and easy. Though, the part where I had to name the symbols Chopin used in the score for the Prelude piece caught me off-guard. Didn't know what to put so I just dotted something down random.

My mind went blank when I was thinking about Mozart during the exam, so I did Rag Desh since i've been revising that a lot recently.

EDIT: This one girl I know wrote down about all versions of Rag Desh because she didn't read the question properly :')

Haha, yeah I saw those symbols and I flipped 10 times... no idea, now found out it's for the pedal press and release. I'd just revised Mozart before so did 3 pages on that, but if it was just ragdesh I would have been able to write nothing #sarangi
Damn that girl must know her stuff!
What grade are you hoping for in just the exam, and overall in music?

My music teacher wanted me to get a B/A. I believe I was a mark off an A in my coursework, so I'm likely to get a B overall.

One more thing, do you remember that question on Moby where it asked for the effect of the device or something? What the fudge was that?

edit: found it http://www.askwillonline.com/2011/05...d-by-moby.html

That's good, our teacher won't tell us so I'm aiming for 65+/80 in the exam. Hope you get the B or possibly an A!

The star symbol and the other symbol both are associated with the pedal. Not sure which is which, but one means to hold the pedal one means to take it off.
