Media Studies (GCSE)
GCSE Media Studies (for Advanced Foundation students only)
The course encourages you to take a closer look at a range of media and develop a critical understanding of how they all work. The course is assessed by one piece of independent coursework, which includes some practical production work, and final examinations on specific media topics, which include TV, Music Videos, Newspapers, Advertising and Film Trailers. All exam aspects of the course study a range of texts, some from the past and some that are current now. The production work covers specific skills such as video editing, website design and desktop publishing.
