Very good. Appropriate and wide-ranging extracts that cover the whole area of study. Exam-style questions are in keeping with the style of the exam. Appropriate level for the melodic dictation questions. Good long-answer style questions with detailed mark schemes... Variety of extracts used that cover the whole area of study... It is really difficult to find good melody dictation questions so having more is great. The extracts can also be used as wider listening and for comparison.
