I have a pupil who is very good at harmony and is desperately hoping for an A grade for his Music A Level. He's produced a composition under controlled conditions, and will do the Bach chorale after the 1st April. Can anybody advise whether he would be sensible to prepare for one of the other tech exercises and then submit these 2 (probably chorale and baroque counterpoint) and sinmply leave the composition out? With a strong candidate, is the marking of the exercises less 'risky' than the compositions? He's happy with his composition, but wouldn't mind not submitting it if it means his predicted grade is safer. Thank you.
