A level and AS level Music Technology Component 4

You may have noticed changes to the component 4 paper code for the May/June 2022 examinations. The front cover of the exam papers will now show as 8MT0 41 and 9MT0 41. The change has been implemented due to the new method of submission of candidate audio for the component 4 exams. This does not affect the content of the paper.

Component 4 hard copy exam papers will continue to be submitted to us by post. Exam Audio should now be uploaded to our online submission portal called Digital Learner Work Transfer (DLWT). More information and support can be found here.

The table below illustrates how the component 4 exam paper and exam audio should be submitted to us.
