I'm taking Higher music next year and I was wondering if the listening paper is the same style (mainly multiple choice with a literacy question and 1 extended answer question) and how much harder it is, like is the jump manageable eg, how many new concepts roughly.

The jump is really not that big, in fourth year I was in the N5 class at school but sat the Higher exam with some extra help from my teacher. In terms of the practical part, it’s a grade above N5 but with the whole year to practice it’s definitely doable. The listening has an extended answer question and some multiple choice but I remember it was usually a box full of concepts and you had to pick the correct 4 for the piece played. Maybe check out a past paper to get the overall structure of the paper. The new concepts can be a bit tricky to differentiate between because some sound quite similar but others are very obvious and stand out. Honestly, with practice you pick them up and it’s really not too bad. Good luck

i’m in s4 and i’m crashing higher music this year without having studied the nat 5 course. one of the main differences i see is some words change to a higher level (eg grace notes become acciacatura) but composition is very very similar and some performing pieces are very easy to master. i’m sure you’ll do great
