AS Music Edexcel Listening - Pupils finding it very hard

    Hi all
    Gave my AS music pupils a mock exam last week and was pleasantly surprised in their results with the exception of the listening section. They are finding it really difficult to score more than 8 or 9 marks (out of 16) on the practice questions. (This is with Edexcel)

    Just wondered if anyone has any clever ideas to help them improve or any good techniques they have used with pupils? We have done loads of practice questions but they are just finding it really difficult to identify some of the features.

    Any ideas welcome!!

    The Rhinegold listening tests are written by the current principal examiner for the listening paper and the current chair of examiners, so I doubt if they are far off the mark.
