Information regarding the HSC examination in Music 1 from 2010

Decisions made by the Board of Studies in December 2008 have resulted in changes to some HSC examinations in 2010 and beyond.

In the Music 1 HSC examination in 2010 and beyond:

  • the written (Aural Skills) examination is worth 30 marks and the practical components (core performance and three electives) are each worth 20 marks. The marks for Core Performance and the Electives will be converted to a mark out of 70, giving a total mark out of 100 for the examination.

There are no changes to the Music 1 written (Aural Skills) examination specifications for 2010 and beyond. The 2010 Music 1 written examination will have the same format and structure as past examinations. Working through past HSC examinations would be a valuable part of a student's preparation program for the 2010 HSC examination in this course. The nature, format and particular emphasis of questions may change from year to year. It is important that students read and respond to the questions in examinations rather than prepare a response to a preconceived idea of what the question will entail.

More details about the examination, and information about assessment components and weightings are in Assessment and Reporting in Music 1 Stage 6. (PDF, 225 KB)
