Examination 70%

There will be two exams at the end of the two year course.

Component 1:    2 hours 15 minutes

Component 2:    2 hours 30 minutes

They will include:

  • Component 1 contains a mixture of stepped and extended essay questions and will include one unseen text as well as asking you to use texts you have studied in your answers.
  • Component 2 consists of three sections: Television in the Global Age, Magazines and Media in the Online Age with an essay question on each.

Both papers will offer an opportunity to explore meanings created within media texts and analysis of the representations they contain as well as the application of theoretical concepts to media texts.

Coursework 30% (internally assessed and externally moderated)

You will have the opportunity to put your knowledge and understanding into practice via a coursework unit which requires you to construct a cross media production, informed by detailed research.  The briefs will be set by the exam board each year and might include options such as: producing a range of marketing materials for a new TV documentary to include a trailer, or creating a music video with an accompanying promotional webpage.
