Practise - Listen to as many aural pieces as possible. This will familiarise you with the language.
Listen carefully to the instructions that you are given at the start of the exam.
Read all the questions - this will give you an idea what you are to look out for in the piece.
Each section is played at least twice –
  • The first time the piece is played – listen out for the answer. Don't panic if you don’t understand everything, just be careful to listen out for keywords.
  • The second time the piece is played – write down your answer.
  • The third time the piece is played – check over what you have written down to make sure it is right.
Attempt each question - don't leave blanks
