BTEC First Award in Music - Unit 1 Exam Questions


Past exam papers are so useful – what better source of practice questions? But, other than a straight mock exam, the questions aren’t in the most useful format.

This resource has all of the section A questions from all available past papers (10 papers, 119 questions) arranged by topic (as PowerPoint and PDF) so you can easily target certain areas (perhaps after a PLC check). They can be done very quickly as starters or plenaries, perhaps using student whiteboards.

The three sections of the paper (including section A again) have then been divided up so that a quick lesson activity can be be completed rather than a whole paper. To help with planning, the first page of each PDF lists the topics involved in each part. The mark scheme is also provided, so everything can be printed off in one run. It’s so useful to give students the mark schemes!

The questions have deliberately been left in their original font and format, this may look odd with the grids, but it’s important for students to get used to what the papers look like.

Please note - there are no new questions here, they can all be had for free from Pearson, the resource has a small cost due to the amount of reorganisation that’s gone on. The PowerPoint was created on a Mac, which can cause some formatting issues on PCs that are easily fixed. A PDF version is provided to aid printing and formatting.
