Music Aptitude Tests 2019 State School Entry

Our new and updated training materials consists of questions of four types: Pitch, Melody, Texture and Rhythm. We have also included supplementary questions (1 test of 60 questions) covering Shape, Volume, Length & Speed including Graphic Scores. 

The training tests are indicative of the style of MAT used in the UK but please note that there may be some variation with the test that each school uses.

If you are experiencing any issues with our online payment system, please email and we will be able to assist you. Ensure you backup the files as there is an admin charge of £5 for resending the files.

Once you purchase the files, you will receive a link to download the files. If you do not receive the email, check your Junk Mail folder as occasionally the download link goes here. If you do not receive the files, please email us ASAP and we will send these to you (usually within the hour if not sooner).

Our next group training session is on 1st August 2018:

The files will come as a zipped folder containing 4 complete tests, the answer sheet and a blank test sheet. Please save onto your desktop computer and extract the contents to access the files. Use a desktop computer or laptop to download these files. An iPhone or iPad will not download and unzip the files correctly. 

Here is a video tutorial on how to unzip a folder. These are MP3 sound files and will open in iTunes or Windows Media player.
