This review is from: Music Theory Past Papers 2013, ABRSM Grade 5 (Sheet music)
For those unfamiliar with the format, ABRSM publish each year the previous years' exam papers. This set, as they all do, contains 4 past papers, the one set in the spring session, the summer session, the autumn session and an extra paper. I would recommend working through at least two different booklets for Grade 5 (ie 8 papers) if you want to be really familiar with the layout and get a good mark in the exam. These follow on nicely from the ABRSM Music Theory in Practice books but it's hard to get a really good mark from the books alone. Model answers are available separately should you need them.
I used to say to pupils it didn't matter what year past papers you got and to a certain extent it doesn't. However, I have noticed very subtle changes in the language and even questions over the 20 years I've been teaching this (I know, old!) so I now recommend pupils get the latest year they can - of which 2013 currently is.
