It is only small part of your practical exam. You will need to be able to sing (or play back) a few bars of a simple tune after it has been played to you on the piano by the examiner.

You will need to be able to clap the rhythm of a few bars of a tune that has been played to you and identify the time signature.

You will need to be able to answer a few questions about a short piece of music played to you by the examiner such as its style (Legato vs staccato) dynamics (any changes) was major or minor.

And sight sing a few notes (not to any rhythm just pitch)

There is more info here

Good Luck
