same, i haven't even started revising for my music gcse!! but by the way, samba em preludio isn't going to be tested on. you may need it for unfamiliar listening because that will be based on fusions though. if i made zero sense, here is a link on what will be on the test --> https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zn86hcw#zh3gcmn5
we are both in this together so good luck!

hey, do you know how long there is at the end for the 12 mark essay?
how did you find the exam... i thought it was ok but i definitely haven't got full marks - there were so many qs on harmony!!
