Grade 1 Practice Tests PDF (ABRSM Syllabus)

Grade One Music Theory Practice Tests (ABRSM Syllabus)

In summer 2020 the ABRSM grades 1-5 music theory exams became available as online-only exams. The format has changed to multiple-choice questions (with one or two exceptions), with the whole paper being marked out of 75 points (previously 100). The pass/merit/distinction bands are broadly the same as before.

The content of the exam remains largely unchanged,with a few minor alterations to the list of required foreign terms (shorter!) and type of questions you are asked to do. It is mainly the format of the questions that is new.

We have created a brand new PDF to help you prepare for the new style of exam with confidence! With 10 complete tests (including answers), you will have more than enough practice material to score top marks in your ABRSM Grade 1 Music Theory exam.

(Grade 5 is also available here).
