AS Music Technology Exam Dates: Thursday 25th May 2017 (PM)
On the lead up to the AS music tech exam, we will be running revision sessions to help students with their AS music technology preparations. Below is a list of topics that we will be covering each day. Follow the attached guide and web broadcasts for the full days plan.
This event starts on Saturday 13th May 2017
The aim of these sessions is to cover all of the areas of study that you will need to be able to successfully complete the AS Music Technology exam. Our intention is to focus on a new topic each and every day, going over the core aspects of the exam.
Each day will start with some general information regarding the topic with some useful links for you to do further research and experimentation. This will be followed by a set of revision cards and then consolidated with a quiz, test or worksheet. This will be a whirlwind tour but don’t be put off if there are areas of study that you are not quite sure of yet, just make a note and do further research. With this in mind here are the topics that we will be covering.
Please Note: Due to popular demand we have published all of the below revision sessions early. This will allow you to either take the day by day revision sessions program or at your own speed. Thank you you all for your feedback and I hope this helps with your studies.
