This 50 page resource contains a compilation of practice questions for the Component 3: Appraising exam for the new 2016 Pearson Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Specification. In the exam, students will be required to complete listening questions based on set works from each of the areas of study. The questions in this collection are tailored specifically towards the set works in Area of Study 2: Vocal Music.

The collection contains:
– Five listening questions based on Henry Purcell, Oedipus, Z. 583: Music for a While
– Five listening questions based on Queen, Killer Queen
– Three musical dictation questions based on Henry Purcell, Oedipus, Z. 583: Music for a While
– Three musical dictation questions based on Queen, Killer Queen
– Two unfamiliar listening questions.
– Full mark scheme for teachers.
– Student mark record sheet for tracking progress.

Student Book
– In response to a 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 consult 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, so should be available already.

These questions 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.

A sample question is available to preview by selecting the 'Sample Question' file in the files list.

Practice Exam Questions Bundle for Pearson Edexcel GCSE Music (2016 Specification) - Areas of Study 1-4 Bundle

**Important: please read the information below about audio, and skeleton scores in the AoS3 and AoS4 books.** 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 Musicnotes.com. 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. If you purchase this bundle, please leave a rating and feedback!

Absolutely fantastic as a one person department all of Sean’s resources for Edexcel GCSE have been such a valuable investment. Used some of the wider listening resources today during live TEAMS lesson and they wanted more! Thank you

In case you've not spotted it yet...the key signatures are wrong for the Purcell dictation exercises (Should be in A minor) . Otherwise an excellent resource.

This is one of the most useful resources anywhere! It has saved so much time and hopefully will provide my students with plenty of relevant practice until we all know what's required! Thank you so much!
