Music Technology A Level

I was thinking of taking Music Tech A Level but I'm not sure. I read another forum which said that I needed to be able to read music notation, but the Sixth Form I'm applying to says that it's not compulsory, and that "appropriate skills" will be assessed, and that you need "Technology or an equivalent level of general music or music technology experience". I've been playing the acoustic guitar since March last ysar if that helps.

How is the course? Do you need musical notations skills?

The course changed from 2017, you don't need to know any musical notation. Although sometimes they ask you to draw on a musical phrase with MIDI which would require you to know your notes by ear.
