  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

Give your students the support they need to prepare for the listening paper, with three full practice papers that mirror the exam style exactly. The papers ensure students are familiar with the exam format, and ready to answer any type of question. Use as a full mock exam or set individual questions as lesson starters.

  • Audio tracks with instructions on CD – for the real exam experience
  • Full mark schemes included for easy peer- or self-marking
  • Bonus! Examiner’s commentary and advice in each mark scheme – helps students to understand how their papers are marked, improve their answers, and access top grades
These practice papers are essential for all teaching the AQA specification... Exam tips are useful and well-articulated... Between the 3 papers, all areas are covered thoroughly. L Williams, Music Teacher & Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5665)
"Good preparation for candidates. The papers looked like AQA papers, and the language in questions was generally very close to AQA, which is helpful. Tracks were well-chosen and covered a range of musical styles and genres." - L Waring, Examiner and Independent Reviewer
"Gives teachers a range of examples for students to practise... A good match to what is required in the specification... I liked the range of repertoire." - D Madden, Director of Music and Independent Reviewer
"These practice papers are essential for all teaching the AQA spec. I have found it difficult in my early years of teaching to find appropriate exemplar material and to create questions that imitate the past papers effectively... Enables students to practise answering exam questions as well as gaining vital tips on how to answer the questions. Exam tips are useful and well-articulated... Between the 3 papers, all areas are covered thoroughly... This resource is invaluable and provides me with the resources needed to facilitate progress and increase student understanding and ability." - L Williams, Music Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"This is a highly valuable resource for teaching and learning, as well as revision and mock exam purposes... The range of musical examples across the strands of learning is particularly useful and provides breadth of musical experience... All students are challenged with a range of questions in this resource... Enables students to have a very 'real' experience of the style and layout of the exam papers." - M Lewis, Music Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"This is a highly useful resource that will be welcomed by GCSE music teachers who need to give students more practice with exam papers but may only have a limited supply of actual past papers from AQA... Provides necessary and useful training for music students giving them a good range of listening styles along the way... The resource matches and interprets the specification virtually perfectly... Our Y10s would value this resource very much in their preparation for May next year." - M Thiselton, Music Teacher and Independent Reviewer
