  1. 1. Mock Analysis
  2. 2. Please spend 10 minutes going through your exam paper and read each comment and feedback. If there is something you don’t understand please star the page so you can ask me later.
  3. 3. Grade Boundaries from 2012/13 Grade Points you need to get in order to reach this grade A 41 B 37 C 33 D 30 E 27 U Up to 26
  4. 4. Overall Feedback;  Most of you did much better in this exam than you did in the last mock so well done.  You need to make sure that you revise as for most of you its about the lack of knowledge and that isn’t anything Helen and I can help you with if we have already taught you the topic. You need to make sure you revise. It is a lot to remember so you must revise regularly rather than try to cram it in at the last minute before the exam.  Once again people were LATE to the exam. You need to arrive to your exam on time. You should have made an extra effort to get to your exam on time if you wanted to true reflection of your current abilities.  You need to remember to use the P.E.A. system when answering questions that are 6 – 20marks; Point, Evidence, Analysis  You need to consider the key words in the question so you know what you are expected to do.
  5. 5.  Anisha – you are able to answer questions in class but you struggle to get this knowledge onto your exam paper. You answers are too vague and not detailed enough and this is what is losing you marks.  Emmanuella – you tend demonstrate decent knowledge of the topics in the mock but sometimes you misunderstand the question and this leads to you losing marks. Handwriting was much better but there was a lot of crossing out.  Sharan – you are answering the questions much better but still lacking some knowledge of the topics. You are too vague with your answers.  Abia – you have some good knowledge but sometimes your answers lack detail  Orlando – you clearly remember a lot of the topics covered and you answer the questions well, but more detail and revision will help you to get higher marks.  Siobhan – you write a hell of a lot of words but you don’t tend to make a focussed point. Sometimes in half a page of an answer there is only one actual point made. I’m not sure if it is your understanding of the question or just the way you respond. Sometimes you say something that is complete incorrect or made up. You need to revise.  Cherilyn – you are answering the question much better and you clearly understanding the topics but sometimes you don’t go into enough detail or don’t ensure you’ve answered the question fully. Practice will make perfect.
  6. 6. Front of the Paper Time allowed 1.5 hour Instructions Use black ink or black ball-point pen. Write the information required on the front of your answer book. The Examining Body for this paper is AQA. The Paper Reference is DANC1. Answer all questions. Do all rough work in your answer book. Cross through any work that you do not want to be marked. Information The marks for questions are shown in brackets. The maximum mark for this paper is 60. You will be marked on your ability to: – use good English – organise information clearly – use specialist vocabulary where appropriate Advice You are advised to spend 30 minutes on Section A and 1 hour on Section B. You will be expected to draw on your knowledge of choreography, performance and appreciation in answering these questions. You may use diagrams and/or floor plans where appropriate
  7. 7. Questions 01 and 02 and 03 are linked. 01 Describe one key motif that you have created for a solo or group dance. (2 marks)  Most of you gained at least 1 mark for this question but it is an easy question to answer so you should have all gotten two marks  The question does not ask you to attach meaning to your motif. So any explanation of what the motif means is a waste of time.  Anisha, please read your answer. How this was marked; 1 mark for a simple description, 2 marks for a detailed description e.g. I stand with my arm up = 1 mark; I stand in parallel with my right arm up extended straight up and my left arm placed down my left side with my eyes facing front = 2marks
  8. 8. Questions 01 and 02 and 03 are linked. 02 Identify two developments that you made to the key motif. (2 marks)  To answer this question correctly you should understanding how to develop movement  Most of you got 2 marks for this question  Although repetition is a motif development, in terms of this question, it doesn’t develop the movement of the motif. Therefore if repetition was one of your answers, you would not have gotten a mark unless you were talking about group choreography. ‘Stillness’ is not a development. It is nothing. So you would not have gotten a mark if you used ‘stillness’ as a development.  Abia, please read your answer How this question was marked; You would get marks for identifying any developments to action, dynamics and/or spatial qualities e.g. levels, facing, use of body part, pathway, retrograde, tempo, fragmentation
  9. 9. Questions 01 and 02 and 03 are linked. 03 Explain how the motif and the developments were significant in the solo or group dance. (6 marks)  This question is linked to questions 01 and 02. So when talking about the significance of the motif and development, you are to suppose to talk about the motifs and developments you have already mentioned.  Some of you of you did not fully explain the relevance of your chosen developments – you were too vague about why the developments were important (Sh, Ab, An)  Some of you talked about developments that you had not mentioned before in question 2 (C, O)  If you did not answer questions 01 or 02 properly, it is unlikely you would be able to get full marks for this question. How this question was marked; you would get marks here for showing your understanding of how the motif and development were significant. For example, communication of intention, reinforcing/developing style, providing contrast, highlight, climax, contributing to structure, shape/form. Building/decreasing momentum
  10. 10. 04 Describe two features of a safe dance space. (2marks)  Most of you identified two features of a safe dance space but did not say how they made the space safe.  Orlando, please read your answer. How this question is marked; you will get marks for describing how features of the space are connected to an understanding of safe practice
  11. 11. 05 Describe the PRICE regime and when it should be implemented (4 marks)  Most of you gave vague answers, incorrect answers or didn’t answer the question fully  Some of you did not even answer this question (An, Si), which is worrying because you could get a number of questions about injuries for this exam How this question is marked; you get marks for describing what PRICE means and marks for saying when it should be used.
  12. 12. 06 Explain the importance of a good diet (4 marks)  Do not spend time explain what a good diet is – the question is asking you to explain why it is important.  Some of you were a bit vague and didn’t give enough detail about the effects a good diet has on the body and therefore how it is beneficial to dancers.  Emmanuella, you probably would have been marked 4/4 if you didn’t have such poor grammar. The poor grammar made your answer confusing.  Orlando, please read your answer How this question is marked; you get marks for describing the benefits of a good diet and relating this to why it is important for dancers
  13. 13. 06 Explain how a choreographer develops movement ideas from a starting point. You may wish to consider the following: research, improvisation, experimentation, manipulation Provide examples from your own experience as a choreographer and/or from processes used by professional choreographers. (20 marks) How this question is marked; you get marks for demonstrating from personal experience and/or knowledge of professional choreographers’ approach to choreography: *description of the research related to the movement ideas; analysis and abstraction of the starting point; the value of research *description of improvisation and tasks that initiate movement ideas *analysis of the relative success of improvisation in developing ideas through movement *analysis of the relative success of experimentation/exploration in developing ideas *knowledge of choreographic devices, for example motif and motif development, variation, repetition, contrast, highlights, climax, transition, chance *description of how specific choreographic devices have been used to develop movement ideas *the use of choreographic journal to record and develop ideas
  14. 14.  Some of you did not respond to the question fully by actually addressing the different elements of the question  Most of you did not provide enough of a detailed answer 06 Explain how a choreographer develops movement ideas from a starting point. You may wish to consider the following: research, improvisation, experimentation, manipulation Provide examples from your own experience as a choreographer and/or from processes used by professional choreographers. (20 marks)
  15. 15. 07 Discuss how choreographers explore theme and subject matter. Refer to three professional works. (20 marks) How this question is marked; you get marks for an explanation of theme, explanation of subject matter, demonstrating an understanding of how these are explored through -Constituent features -Communication of intention (what the audience should ‘get’) -Development of material through research and manipulation -Choreographic devices (structure, motif development, relationships etc)
  16. 16. 07 Discuss how choreographers explore theme and subject matter. Refer to three professional works. (20 marks)  Many of you are not clear what a theme is or what subject matter means.  Most of you were able to explain the works very well but not in relation to the question – which is a shame.
