Nah it's definately between 70-80% :)

I cannot remember exactly. I put something about the balafon break, then yiri, then vocal solo, then vocal response and then underneath I wrote Balafon ostinati.

i thought the yiri was really hard to answer but the guys voice on it was funny lke he was speaking underwater :L i started grace but then chose the chopin one it was quite easy really and yes some of the section a was hard i mean like the moby chord sequences we hadnt been taught that so that was a bit annoying but this paper hasn't been done before so i think the grade boundaries wont be to high it will be achievable :)

The Moby chord sequence is Am Am Em Em G G D D :) But if you hadn't been taught it then there wasn't really anyway of knowing without having perfect pitch. I chose the Chopin too but don't think that I did very well :/ If I get close to full marks in the rest of the paper but only about 4 in the 10 mark question, what would that make my overall mark?

i thought this paper was ok actually, one of my friends was very nervous though, i did the buckley question at the end because in the revision book it just seemed easier to learn and then write down. Also in the yiri part did anyone else really want to laugh when the guy goes, "YIRI.......YIRIYIRIYIRI..........YIRI" i just think its hilarious!

I chose the Chopin question. We've done all the specimen papers at least three times in our class (don't ask me why) and you have to have written at least two points for each thing they specified (Structure etc...) But in the past, 70-80% has been an A*. I don't think they've said what the boundaries are for this year though..

it wasn't as bad as i thought, i chose the buckley question and regretted it as i ended up trying to remember everything and dried up with what to say half way through. I remembered a few things at the end and had to write it in then so it didnt flow too well. If you get pretty much 80-100% in the composing and performing you have to get at least 50-60% in the written....

This paper was very hard, but surprisingly is only 40% of overall grade

The grade boundaries only change once the examiners have marked the papers.

If the majority of people in UK found the paper hard and get lower than usual marks, the grade

boundaries are lowered, and vice versa

I did the Chopin piece for section B,

Moby chord sequence was good, as well as the koko:yiri boxes which did look confusing at first :s

What about for the rest of the questions mainly, how did you guys find it ?
