Information regarding the HSC examination in Music 2 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 2 HSC examination in 2010 and beyond:

  • the examination specifications for the written (Musicology and Aural Skills) examination now specify that one of the four questions will be worth 10 marks (this has been the case in Musicology and Aural Skills HSC examinations in the past but has not been specified in the examination specifications)
  • there are no changes to the practical examination, submitted composition and elective components.

The 2010 Music 2 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.
