AS Music Technology Revision Sessions

AS Music Technology (08 Specification resits) Exam Dates: Thursday 24th May 2018 (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 listening and analysing exam preparations.


This event starts on Saturday 12th May 2018

The aim of these sessions are to cover all of the areas of study that you will need to be able to successfully complete for the AS Music Technology exam. Our intention is to focus on a new topic each session and to go over the core aspects of the exam.


Each session, starts with some general information regarding the topic with some useful links for you to do further research and experimentation. These are then followed by a set of revision cards and then consolidated with a quiz, test or worksheet.
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 or start them as and when you need them. Thank you all for your feedback and I hope this helps with your studies.
