    Any predictions for Section 1A and 1B?
    Looking back at past papers, the one's which have come up the least would be:

    1a. Post-production or Digital Technology (twice each)
    1b. Audience or Media Language (once each)

    That said, it really isn't that predictable. Unfortunately, examiners are always trying to catch you out on unexpected questions, so you really need to revise it all. In other words, basically ignore this post haha. Kinda hoping media language doesn't come up in all honesty.

    Research and Planning was pretty average for me, would have preferred post-production or digital technology, but at least it wasn't one of those questions which combines two of the topics so I'm still fairly happy with that.

    I was initially dreading the thought of Media Language coming up, but in hindsight I think that actually went quite well.

    Overall I'm feeling content with how that went. Definitely wasn't a disaster, but could have gone a bit better I guess. Didn't get to write quite as much as I wanted on the postmodernism question but I feel I wrote enough. Not complaining though. How about you?

    yeah i agree, digital tech would have been great. Media language went OK. I didn't have enough time so i feel like the level of depth was not good enough.

    I did collective identity for section B which also went OK. It could have been worse i agree. Overall i feel mediocre, guess we just have to wait and see

    Yeah, I struggled a bit for time as well, would never have expected it in a 2 hour exam.

    Yup, I guess so. Well, best of luck anyway, hope you've done well

    My media language went alright, i just talk about symbolic codes and how the use of costume connoted meaning like the bloody clothes for the antagonist which connotes danger and Horror (my couserwork was a horror trailer ) for technologic codes theory i said the use of high angles to show the protagonist being wear ect didn't have much time for the question 2 but i still was able to write a lot of little points so over all i feel like i was able to get
