    It's an interesting question. The Copyright, Designs and Patents act has a specific exclusion for "examinations"

    The rights conferred by Part II are not infringed—

    (a) by the copying of a recording of a performance for the purposes of setting or answering the questions in an examination, or

    (b) by anything done for the purposes of an examination by way of communicating the questions to the candidates.

    Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (c. 48)

    I guess it's debatable whether coursework is considered to be part of an examination.

    No mention is made of modification, which you'd be doing, so I very much doubt it'd be legal.

    They should be able to find something suitable at Freeplay Music, Broadcast Production Music Library, Free and Mp3 Music Downloads, See Usage Terms. but it's not quite as free as the name implies. You can't use it on a youtube video unless you cough up a tidy sum.

    The exemption is by arrangement and the examining body 'inform' the appropriate publisher they are doing it.

    Should the examining body give you a sample CD to work with then this will be exempt from CDPA during the coursework (which is not regarded as an examination I should add ... but an assessed piece of work completed outside of examination conditions).
