Yes, as long as your device has a 3.5mm (mini-jack) output. Not all examination centres have Wi-Fi or good mobile signal, candidates should not rely on being able to access Replay.
If using the Replay player during an exam, the “Advanced settings” must be set in a way that allow the Replay Player bar numbers to reflect the bar numbers written in the Rockschool book. This will sometimes not be the case if the ‘Expand repeats’ box is ticked. The advanced settings are located via the cog in the bottom right hand corner of the Replay player, then “Advanced…”. The reason for this is to eliminate inconsistencies between yours and the examiners notation for when General Musicianship Questions are asked.
