    I'm doing it on the OCR board, would the regional identities come up on that?
    It's a different exam board and specification so it won't. Surely your teacher should have taught you if it was to come up...

    It's better to use your 'left-over' case studies from Question 3. If it's National/Regional Identity on Question 3 (which is likely...) you can use Gender, Ethnicity, Age, Events that you have probably learnt in class.

    Gender is the easiest. Mulvey's "Male Gaze" applied to 'Casino Royale' (2006) works well as a reversal of this theory.
    Daniel Craig emerges from the ocean (which is an intertextual reference to Halle Berry (in Die Another Day) and Ursula Andress (in Dr. No). Shows a different and changing cultural aspect to James Bond. Usually it was the female's getting gorped at..and also perhaps looking at Daniel Craig's body is not only just for the female audience? Some male audiences might aspire to this scene too.
    Thank you so much! Very helpful.
    Also, I'm not sure how much to write for each question - what would you suggest?

    So the general consensus is that national and regional identity will come up?
    Anyone thought of using 'this is England' for this ?

    Also any tips on the questions on the audience for the audio/visual clip we are shown, this one really let me down on my mock.

    Hasn't your teacher taught you this?! - Totally depends how quick you write but as a guide:

    You should spend around an hour on Question 1 (that's including the extract viewing time..), and 45 mins on the other two. So if you start the exam at 9:00am tomorrow; work on Question 1 till about 10am then answer Question 2 until about 10:45am then Question 3 until 11:30am.

    It's the one that's due.

    'This Is England' could be used, though it is 7 years old and the exam board like you to talk about 'in the media today' - stuff in the last 3 years or so.

    2a (name two audiences for the extract and why) and 2b (choose one audience and expand) are the easiest questions on the exam paper. You shouldn't struggle with them.

    That's true was just an idea. I'll probably go for the idea of britishness i.e Olympic opening ceremony and then MIC and towie

    However those questions the substance wasn't really the base of my confusion more of the structure and length of answer

    2a: Name two audiences then give two examples from the extract where it particularly targeted the audience. Probably about a paragraph!

    2b: choose one of your audiences for 2a and explain more. Use 3 examples from the extract and stick a theory in.

    2c: should be at least a page and a half

    I'm doing music as my media platform for part B of the exam. I see further up people were saying that you answer both parts of section B...for AS-level you only answer one of the questions in section B (AQA exam)
    Also what is this about regional/ethnicity? Don't think this implies to music does it?

    I'm going to do Dizzee Rascal 'Sirens' for ethnicity and Arctic Monkeys 'Leave Before the Lights Come On' for regional nationality. So yh music applies

    Came out of the exam feeling slightly unsure. I did not like question 2 on nationality, something I was ill prepared for. What did everyone else think?

    Well it says detailed examples, that's better than talking about loads but in no detail I assume that's what they mark on
