This is a structured listening and appraising resource to help learners prepare for the WJEC GCSE Music exam paper -MUS3.

The resource includes a vocabulary section and appraising tasks similar to those set in the exam.

These units contain areas of study relating to the legacy specification. They have been included as although the areas are different the musical content is similar and they will still be of use to teachers.

  • Unit 1 – Style and Tonality Questions
  • Unit 2 – Comparing Music Questions
  • Unit 3 – Multiple Choice Questions
  • Unit 4 - Musical Characteristic Questions
  • Unit 5 – Aural Skills
