    Right, so I'm quickly realising how little i know and how unprepared i am for this exam so could someone help me? i know that Question 1 is the analysis on three points but what are the possible points? question 2 a and b are based around the audio visual extract (s), any ida on what they could be? Finally for 2c and 3 one has to be about representation and one has to be about audience, any ideas on what the audience question will be? i know it is reckoned that representation will be on issues or events. Also is it thought that 2c) will be the audience question or 3? i know it is all speculation at this point but any help would be much appreciated.

    Pls help me exam tomorrow what do i talk about if events and issues come up what do i talk about
    Issues, talk about the examples you have studied in lessons. Choose 2-3 examples of issues in the media today (immigration, poverty and welfare etc.) say if its a threat to the U.K or deserve sympathy and help by using visual and technical codes. Also, it's best to put in depending on if it is a 2.c or 3. question, if it's a 3. question add mediation so what producers, script writers have to do in Pre-production (Research,Planning,Script writing/article writing), Production (Filming/photography, mise en scene, choice of language) then Post Production ( Editing) and add Ideology so what is the text saying about society and what does the producer gain from representing the issue that way. Then just add a paragraph of audience positioning and responses.

    Events, choose 2 events that have happened recently like I chose celebrity deaths and Paris attack, in that use the Gatlung and Ruge theory so why the text is worthy to be in the news. Use Uses and Gratifications theory (what reason the audience seeks out this specific media text to fulfil their needs), Audience responses and targeting, analysis and meanings, narrative.

    Question 1 is normally going to be on either Audio Codes, Visual or Technical Codes, Narrative or Genre.
    Question 2 a. can be either to do with audiences so that is most likely to be targeting but you could also have representation based on the video (gender, national and regional identity etc.) b. is normally just following on from a. so just answering more in depth.
    I don't know what audience will be at all cause it hasn't really got a sequence unlike representation. We are thinking that 2.c will be audience and 3. Representation

    My teacher has predicted that for question 1 the textual analysis will be on video games with a focus on how women are presented (I'm not sure why but thats what he has said).
    And for question 3 he thinks events is going to come up which I am praying it doesn't because I have no preparation for events... We studied the Grand National 2016 and 2016 Olympics but I don't have any examples, I also have no practice for this question..

    I reckon it'll be between masculinity, since I've been looking through the past papers from WJEC and it is yet to come up yet individually, as it has come up but through 'representation of gender', two summers after that femininity was the representation question and now it is two years later so possibly a turn for masculinity?
    Issues has showed up once during the summer exam of 2012, so that could possibly make a return, as well as a first time appearance for events.
    National identity could also make a return as that hasn't shown up in 3 years.
    Those are the main four I reckon could show up, I believe that age has already showed up three times in the last 5 years, including last year (age in general, youth and old age) so I consider that an unlikely possibility. Ethnicity was also just two years ago and I doubt they'd bring up the same topic not soon after, at least for the age representation there is a more open topic to be discussed depending on the type of question asked.
    Any other ideas? Any idea whether the audience question will be? Construct, response, appeal and position?

    how can you talk about audience theory in q1? in q1 you only talk about the bulletpoints that it gives you to talk about. talk about audience theory on whichever question has audience in the title surely?

    Contemporary issues are any case studies that are 'in the media today' dated back to the past 5 years. That exam was a blessing!!! So happy - how did everyone find it?

    Ah I also done body image issues, such a good one to write about . And I was just a bit confused because we had been taught and given stuff to revise for representation stuff that dates a little further back than 5 years (but within last 10 years) so idk lol

    I agree, such a good exam! I think the extract was pretty good, I just wrote about connotations of success, pride, wealth and other stuff like that!
