I don't think I got the Poulenc key question right, but the rest was okay. Not sure how you get 2 marks out of the structure though, I just said it was section B in ternary form, and for the expressionist one, I couldn't decide between Celeste or Xylophone, and Monophonic or Contrapuntal. I put Celeste and Contrapuntal in the end though. The dictation was horrific, though, and I'll be surprised if I got more than 2/10, to be fair.
Pop and rock was the nicest section I’d say :/
Didn’t even like the Haydn questions to be honest- movement four meh
Do you think the ease boundaries will be lower than last year? I found last years paper easier than this years?
Also, I know more about Expressionism to Neoclassical, because of one of my old GCSE songs, so I found that okay I think. I got the word painting one I hope, and I was pleased with that because no one I’ve spoken too knew what it meant.
The dictation was bad like we’ve said, but I only got 3/10 in last years anyway, and I agree, the Haydn was bad. I knew basically nothing about the thematic material...
I reckon the boundaries’ll be about the same, maybe a little bit lower.
I have mixed thoughts about it all tbh.
I just hope compositions aren’t going to get roasted lol- got to hope for the best to be honest
My teacher roasted my compositions enough as I was writing them, so hopefully they were good in the end... I felt like my performance went well though, so that’s something at least
I’m not gonna lie we weren’t even taught all of pop and rock and we only learned movements 3 and 4 a month ago and that’s no lie. Our teachers were pretty.... allover lol
I put 1976 as the date of the Billy Joel one tho so hopefully that gets a mark haha
