If you are not sure whether you are ready to take your Grade Five Music Theory exam or not, you will be interested to know that offers an assessment service.

For just £15 you can download our specially formulated diagnostic test. You'll need to print it out and find somewhere quiet to sit and complete the test by hand. Then scan and email it back to us, and we'll give you a detailed breakdown of your current level.

Each question in the test is carefully devised to test your knowledge at a range of levels, and covers each topic tested at this grade.

We will be able to tell you whether you would likely fail, scrape a pass, or get a merit/distinction in the real test.

We'll also tell you, if applicable, which specific areas you need to work on in order to improve your chances in the exam. We categorise your results into key signatures, time signatures, notation, clefs, instruments, scales, intervals, chords, cadences, transposition, SATB and composition, so you can see exactly where your strengths and weaknesses lie.

Is this a practice exam? No. The format of questions is mostly completely different. Each question has been crafted to deliberately test what you know at a basic and advanced level. This way we can tell whether you are a pass level student, or would likely get a distinction, or are somewhere in between.
