5th year here. I got a C in HL JC Music and I was delighted. I decided to keep it on because of the practical element being such a high percentage of the grade. I suck at it. I hate it with a passion. I don't fully understand what the teacher is talking about. Harmony, Mozart and Berlioz are okay. I think the rest of the set works will be fine too and I will do well enough in the practical. I thought this would be enough for me to survive higher level. I find melody writing quite hard. But my teacher keeps hinting at people to do ordinary level and I think she wants me to consider it. I will not. It is simply not an option as I am doing OL Maths and Irish. I am doing PolSoc to make up for it so if I did ordinary there would be no point. My points range is about 490-550. I'm not even worst in the class as there are people who did OL for JC. I refuse to do OL under any circumstance. I average about 50-60% in class tests. I emailed my teacher with these concerns back in November or so but she just gave me extra hw to do. I don't even understand the corrections she gives me, it's like a foreign language! But it is too late to swap. What should I do?? Should I look into getting grinds? All I want is a H4 or even a H5. Is this possible with hard work? Please help!
