You can download the new draft specification and sample assessment material for the redeveloped AS and A level in Music Technology. These have been submitted to Ofqual for accreditation and I will keep you all updated on how this progresses.

To support you with the current AS and A level Music Technology specification, we have pre-recorded feedback from the last exam session on units 6MT01, 6MT02, 6MT03 and 6MT04.

To help prepare you for the new AS and A level Music specification, we're publishing free resources on the website. You can download in-depth notes on the set works and model student answers from the course materials.

This month will see the publication of the Anthology of Music book and CD for A level Music. This will be available to purchase from the Pearson Schools and FE Colleges website. It is not necessary, however, to purchase any resources to deliver our qualifications.
