How to prepare for the upcoming Music Aptitude Tests for 2014 school entry

The first Music Aptitude Tests for secondary school scholarships take place on Monday 2nd September. Our sister website has been inundated with hits from parents and students looking for advice on preparing for music scholarships to state secondary schools in September 2014.

The dates for your test may have already been issued or will be announced very soon. It’s not too late to prepare using the sample tests that are available through our website. The Music Aptitude Tests are unlike the aural section of a graded music exam so we have designed these tests in accordance with the current guidelines for entry tests. They are available for download as zipped MP3 files and we also provide a blank multiple choice test sheet and, of course, the answer sheet!

Students should aim for a minimum score of 46/60.
