With 72 practice exam questions across a combined total of over 200 pages, this bundle is a great companion for teaching and revising for the Pearson Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Music 2016 Specification Appraising exam. Buy these resources together as a bundle and save 37%!

This bundle includes:

  • 40 listening questions, with 5 based on each of the 8 set works;
  • 24 musical dictation questions, with 3 based on each set work;
  • 8 unfamiliar listening questions, each relating to one of the four areas of study;
  • A full mark scheme for teachers;
  • Student mark record sheets for tracking progress;
  • 2 bonus posters showing the different types of questions that might appear in the exam.

Student Books
In response to suggestion made on Twitter by a user of this resource, a student book has now been added which contains just the questions and the mark record sheet, with the answers omitted, to enable teachers to print a whole booklet for their students to use, without them being able to see the answers.

Audio Recordings
For reasons of copyright, this resource does not contain the audio recordings that are required to complete the questions. Full details of specific recordings and timings are provided, and for those questions that relate directly to a set work, the recording used is the same as that recommended in the specification and available on the Pearson Anthology CD, so should be readily available in most classrooms.

Skeleton Scores for Unfamiliar Listening
Unlike the books for Areas of Study 1 and 2, the extracts used for the unfamiliar questions are not taken from music in the public domain. For copyright reasons scores have not, therefore, been included. In place of this, instructions have been included detailing how a score can be made and a suggested score available from The absence of these scores is reflected in the cheaper individual price of the books for AoS3 and AoS4, and in the calculation of this bundle price.

These questions in this bundle are all based on those that will be found in Section A of the examination. No questions based on those from Section B are included.
