Component 3 brief

The brief for the externally assessed component 3 - Responding to a Music Brief was released on 15 January. This is under a gold padlock in the 'Secure Tests' area of the website. This means only your Exams Officer can access it and they will then need to share it with you. 

The brief can only be shared with learners when you begin the 4 hours preparatory time.
