The AMEB levels indicated in the Prospectus give a rough guide only to the level of technical/musical ability that is required for each ensemble. AMEB exams are not a prerequisite for entry, nor does performance at the minimum level guarantee a place into a WA Youth Orchestras ensemble. Applicants who have never sat an AMEB exam or are unsure of their level should seek advice from their instrumental teacher. If you are still unsure, it is best to list preferences for all the relevant ensembles on your application form. Then when you receive your audition excerpts you should select and prepare the one set of excerpts for the ensemble that you and your teacher consider to best match for your playing ability.
