The better responses identified and then described both the more obvious (external) structure and the internal structure of the piece. They discussed structure in terms of more than just changes of performing media, and tied all their musical observations to the question. These responses clearly delineated each section and its features, often by means of well labelled diagrams. The better responses often included discussion on the melodic and sometimes harmonic relationships between the sections; register changes and ornamentation/variation.
The weaker responses mostly listed the main sections of the music. They tended to refer mainly to performing media; often only in general terms eg ‘woodwind’ or ‘strings’. Many responses tried to describe structure in terms of conventional pop music sections eg intro, verse, chorus. Many were confused with terminology, eg referring to binary as ABA. These responses were often disorganised.
