The 2013 Year 11 Music Taster Days will take place on Feb 21 and March 11 2013. Here you can still find general information about how the days are structured and how the applications will be assessed, along with information about the specific sessions on offer and the application forms.
The Music Taster Days are designed for students from the maintained sector who are academically at the top of their cohort. This means that we expect participants to be on course for five A/A* grades in their GCSEs. Please note that the event will involve a high level of academic challenge and some sessions will be delivered in a lecture or seminar format.
We are able to take applications for school and college groups up to a maximum size of 10 students bearing in mind the eligibility criteria. In the majority of cases we expect to receive applications from a teacher on behalf of a group but individual applications are acceptable providing parental consent is given.
If the events are oversubscribed priority will be given as follows:
- Schools with below national average point scores and below national average progression to HE rates.
- Schools with below average HE progression rates but above average point scores.
- Schools with below average point scores but above average HE progression rates.
Within these categories, priority will be given to schools and colleges that have the lowest progression rates and average point scores.
