I had it on monday, was a bit of a nightmare to be honest! The exam board sent the wrong CD's! The paper was marked June 2005 and so were the CD's but when we started listening to them none of the tracks matched up with the paper because the exam board had sent the JANUJARY 2005 CD! The exam was postponed for 2 and half hours while our exam chappy drove over to a nearby school to borrow their AS OCR CD's!!! Absolute nightmare!!!
The exam itself wasn't too bad tho, Schuberts 'Unfinished Symphony' came up and Louis Armstrongs 'Hotter than that' too. Just got to wait for the results now!!! eek!
Did anyone else do the OCR AS examination?

Another person on another forum had the same problem! Sounds like a big hiccup to me!

That's all right surely, because you could've revised in that 2.5 hours what was on the paper... or does AS not work like GCSE?

Well no, because we'd already seen what was on the paper so we werent allowed to do anything related to the exam such as looking through a revision guide or listening to the set works. We had to be monitored by the envigliators (spelling?) who made sure we didnt discuss what we'd seen on the paper with eachother as well!

Ah unlucky, suppose that it's only fair though.
