The Music Aptitude Test is used to give an indication of a student’s musical aptitude and is not a test of musical ability. Each year 10% of places for entry into year 7 will be allocated under the music criterion.

No information is required about the instrument, including singing, or standard to which your child plays.

The 11 Plus Music Team have over 18 years of combined professional music teaching experience. Using our wealth of expertise and in depth knowledge of the Music Aptitude Test, we support and guide students through the secondary transfer music testing process.
