I'm doing the exam today... very very nervous! I'm not brilliant at the listening side of music so it's always quite a challenge for me.

How did everyone find the exam?
I think it was a pretty fair exam. There was a good mix of questions.

Also, when the intro to 'roundabout' by Yes ('to be continued' meme) started playing, I nearly burst out laughing. So yeah, that was fun

It was okay, my teacher gave us the answers ( I think I got about 83% which is not bad )after the exam as he was there when we took it. Some might be wrong but does anyone want to see ?

Glad to hear you thought it was okay A couple of people I've spoke to off TSR weren't too pleased with it, so glad you found it alright!

I think it would be great to know how well or badly it went.

Hi sorry, my teacher didn't give us the copies so Im trying to remember it off the top of my head(it would be helpful if anybody actually knew the question numbers because I cant remember)

1) Obbligato, Oratorio, cant remember the other one but if you tell me your third answer ill remember if it was right
b) Recitative
2) Plagal cadence
3) harmonic minor, Double bass, tremolando, (again forgot sorry)
4)
5) 6/8, The rest should be a quaver rest, I know the last chord was dm, The notes were G and F Im pretty sure
6) Harpsichord, Irregular time signatures,
7) Imitation, chamber music, perfect cadence, again my memory is horrible
8) Baroque, perfect cadence, trill, pizzicato, recorder, harpsichord, strings, cant remember the rest
9) Con sordino was the first box, chromatic and minor shared the same box but not sure the exact box somewhere in the middle, dominant 7th was the second last box and i think sequence was box 4


Sorry I also know that there were two answers with impressionist as the answer apparently but pls let me know which questions i missed so i can tell you the answers

I am pretty sure number 3 also asked about an ornament- if I remember correctly it was a guitar playing and I put mordent as my answer.
