Entry Requirements

An average Attainment 8 score of 5.5 as well as a Grade 5 in English Language or Literature. In addition a GCSE Grade B in Media is preferred.

What is Media Studies?

The Media is arguably the most powerful force at work in society. Today, it bombards us from television screens and we are exposed to it in magazines, newspapers and on the internet. Our leisure and working time is spent consuming Media. Media Studies helps you to make sense of the world around you, encouraging you to become sophisticated and skilled user and maker of Media texts.

The course is lively, artistic, technical, intellectual, challenging and fun. You need to be a writer, director, analyst and serious commentator. Media teaches co-operation and mutual respect within groups and is very much team based.

How will you be assessed?

External examination 01 is worth 35% of total A Level.  Section A of this paper consists of two linked in-depth studies that focus on contemporary news in the UK, requiring learners to explore how and why newspapers and their online counterparts are evolving as media products and the relationship between both online and offline news. Section B will ask learners to explore Media Language and Representations in Magazines, Advertising and Music videos.  This exam is 2hours long and it’s worth 70 marks

External examination 02 is worth 35% of total A Level. This paper comprises two sections. Section A: Media Industries and Audiences and Section B: Long Form Television Drama. This examination is 2 hours long and it’s worth 70 marks.

The Non-Exam Assessment (NEA) or coursework is worth 30% of total A Level.  You must respond to a brief that will consist of a moving image section, a print section and an online media section.  The NEA is the equivalent of 60 marks.
