Can anyone help me with whether the first 33 mark question was about Ownership and control or simply about the new media? I wrote both to save myself from a re-take, but I'm just so not sure!

Anyone?

I wrote about both too! If I had chosen just one then I doubt it would have been enough, also my teacher told me that if the question hints at two things then write about them. I'm so worried…I feel like I just spat information onto the page without making any sense :/

What did you write for the 9 marker?

As I said elsewhere, it could be on anything as long as it related back to the question. Mainly pluralism (which is a part of O and C) and active audiences but as long as you could link it it didn't matter too much. No real wrong answer for 33 marks unless you're absolutely miles off, which you're not.

9 marker.. I wrote about symbolic annihilation, limited roles, 'Glass ceiling' women make up 50% of advertising but are only 26% managers and 15% execs, the male gaze, the beauty ideal, slimness. I could have written so much more but ran out of time and I wrote a page of CRAP.

And I wrote about EVERYTHING for the 33 marker, pluralism, postmodernism, marxism, neophiliacs and cross evaluated it haha. Three pages of absolute rubbish.

Respresentation was so easy, I will pick up most of my marks there. Hope it went well for you!

Haha...yup I literally wrote every approach and cross-evaluated within each other. I was running on around 50% revision productivity beforehand and everything contained was what I revised...how fortunate!

Thank you! I'm glad, I think you covered a few more bases than me though! I didn't mention the glass ceiling specifically but everything else was pretty much in there somewhere haha. Agree with you on representations and the 33 marker. I exploit the fact that they can't take marks off, so I like to write as much as I can incase ANYTHING helps.

Haha yea..like literally. Even if you're wrong they ignore it and focus on the right things. Last year unit 2 education- the research methods question was about stats and the ADV...guess who wrote about ADV+DIS. And still got 118/120

Sociology is great in that respect!

Yeah I think most A Levels depend on the UMS…should hopefully get an A with hard work as well. Can't really say…who knows how the actual exam will go

I'm quite optimistic about things like that though. I've got friends who are at unis despite getting 2 or even 3 grades lower than they were offered (strange, I know). I also see clearing as a saviour rather than the last resort that my sixth form think it is. Where is your firm?

My firm is UEA. I need AAB. It's gonna be a stretch this year. I need to start consolidating crime and deviance. Can't afford to fluke another A.

What's your firm and insurance?

Sorry, no. I can suggest looking at the relationship between the topics for jan and June papers in recent years. You'll see that it resembles quite similarly. Then revise those topics strongly for the paper
