I was a bit unsure about the first test with the musical genres, I found that quite tricky but I must have done OK as I only lost 2 marks overall. The finding the beat test was no problem as the beep didn’t stay in sync with the music for very long, so it was quite easy to spot which one wasn’t correct.
