The AQA specification is followed and the qualification will be attained through Faregos Home Education Exam Centre. Currently lessons are delivered by Skype or face-to-face. A level music is a demanding academic course therefore it is usual to have at least two hour Skype lessons per week (currently £36 per hour) when the course is taken over two years. This tuition would cover the listening and composition paper.
