Major Scales up to three sharps and flats; those in C, D, and E-flat should be in two octaves. Candidates should also prepare a chromatic scale in two octaves (C to C), legato.

Additionally: two études or two movements of a piece for oboe, one of which is on the fast side and shows technical facility, and one slower to show lyrical playing. Typical choices might be contrasting pieces from the Barret Method for Oboe, or two movements (fast and slow) from a Sonata or Concerto by Handel, Telemann, or similar composer.
