For first teaching in September 2009 and examination in June 2011
The new Listening Tests for WJEC GCSE cover the four prescribed Areas of Study for GCSE Music:
- Music in Wales
- Music for Stage and Screen
- Music Evolution and Musical Forms and Devices
The questions are designed to test a pupil's understanding of such features of the music as instrumentation, texture, harmony, rhythm, structure, PLUS period and context.
