It is not to do with grades.

It is all about the performance on the day.

Glad that music is out as now they can focus on those VR results.

There are many students preparing for the second round and some will not make it through so this data needs to be released as soon as possible.

Same for HBS.

In terms of music places the Islington allocation is a total allocation covering siblings, music, academic and looked after children.

Islington rarely secure more than 1 of the music places. It has been just one for all but one of the past five years. DG

Yes that's true, all these kids preparing exams that they might not take :(

I'm pretty sure our DS hasn't made it through the VR

Do you know how long after the second round we will know the music ranking? From memory its quite quick!

thanks, really appreciate your time to inform us deranged 11+ parents :D

Hi,
We found out yesterday that our child has got through to the second round of the DAO music test. I’m just wondering whether there is in interview element, or is it just playing their pieces?
Thanks!

Looks like voice is included:

“ Children achieving 47 marks or above will be invited to attend Musical Aptitude Test 2 which is an individual test. Each child is allocated a 5 minute slot to perform on their preferred instrument/s (voice included). There is a totally free choice of piece(s) and children can perform on more than one instrument if they prefer. It is not possible for candidates to bring their own accompanist, however we can provide an accompanist if required. There is also provision to play a cd backing track.”

You can do anything you like in your 5 mins. My dd1 did 3 things including Singing. DG

Definitely no interview. They might chat to him/her a little to put them at their ease but it won't be an interview.
