I feel really stupid and I just realised it now. I took GCSE music because on option eve my music teacher told me that I was second on his list to be accepted into the course, of course I'm gassed and pretty sure many of the bad students wouldn't be there (I'm safe from bullies lol) and I'm actually quite well at playing piano. In year 10 basically we got some new teacher who assumes that we all know what articulation or dynamics means so he just told us to compose.
But nope I'm not from a musical background nor do I know how to compose properly so for the whole months I was on edge and barely managed to do anything.. at least I managed a nearly finished my free composition when well, then there's theory. I'm f*cked. Listening and appraising exam turned out real **** for the EoY. Wish I could ask my former teacher.. but he left (thanks Mr. V!)
I'm straight A students for traditional subjects (except language which I need work on) and I'm thinking of maybe failing this one because it divides my attention from other subjects and I'm going to fail others as well.
However, I aspire to apply to Oxford/LSE/UCL for law and they are super prestige uni, plus my wanted course is competitive. I'm scared shitless that I won't get a place on any of them if I failed one of my GCSEs even though the subject is not going to be relevant to the course..
So will I survive the uni admissions if I failed a GCSE?
You can work to get GCSE Music up. I do OCR. What board do you do? I can help you/give you advice in PMs. Composing will come to you after some time, you just need to get some inspiration and have a bass chord structure to work from. Don't assume worst case scenarios because you have time to fix it x
I hope I don’t fail my GCSE’s
i failed 2 and i got into edinburgh
your milleage may vary
I went to a top uni and got a D in history and photography lol. Unis don't care as long as you get good grades in English and Maths and sciences (if you want to do a science at uni).
