Yes same I liked the 12 marker because I had a feeling it would possibly come up so i revised it
but I found some parts of the exam really hard as well

It was bad. Not really bad, but bad.

I liked the Music for a While, Brandenburg Concerto and Killer Queen questions, but definitely not the other 3.

Dictation... I'm bad at it so having 10 whole marks on it isn't good. I could be right? pls

Unfamiliar listening- Assuming the chords were as obvious as they seemed... good.

Essay- 2 nice pieces and a good topic (tonality and orchestration are the 2 most important parts of Star Wars), but spent too much time making notes and then it was a 15 minute dash to get everything written. Our teachers must have given us too much time in mocks. That was tough.

All in all, pretty bad.

I wasn't particularly happy when the bell went off twice in Music for a While, kids were screaming outside in the first half and the invigilator had a go at me for looking for a rubber that I hadn't even got.

In section B, if you just evaluate both but don’t compare is that fine? It never explicitly says you have to compare the two...

What did people put for features of African Music for Release?

I said:
-Improvisatory feel (just realising now that's not a word)
-Use of interesting, syncopated rhythms

Idk if this is right but I put:

- cross rhythms to create polyrhythmic texture
- use of loops

it was the same chords repeated for the intro and you could easily hear that they stayed the same. you just had to follow on from the intro, which showed it was Gm, Cm, D (or something) then a bar of no chords. You just had to follow it along.

It didn’t say compare so I didn’t I just wrote about each piece separately? Not sure though

I think that’s what I did, I just copied the pattern but I wrote Gm, Cm, D is that what you got?

I agree
but I found release the easiest.
Ostinato/loop for the bodhran right?? And I put hardy-gurdy for next question, but Uilleann pipes also valid answer I think...

I wrote marimba but I know a lot of people who wrote glockenspiel so they might change the mark scheme so those people get the mark.
