So I want to do some practice papers for Film (section A mostly), as I want an A come June. I went onto WJEC's website and found some past papers, and have done a few. Obviously it's hard to mark your own work, and my film teacher is really busy marking our coursework, so I don't want to ask him to mark it for me.
Are there any model answers I could compare mine to anywhere? I've searched for some on google but can't seem to find any. My teacher had one for another question we did in class, but I think he got them from WJEC as a teacher, and I don't think I could access them. They're really useful for revision purposes.

I did WJEC film too yeah there weren't many example answers available...do you have a marking sheet? So you can mark it yourself, see what you're looking for etc. what films are you studying?

Is it AS you're doing or A2? It sounds like my AS module And yeah, my film teachers were ridiculous when it came to coursework, the deadline was January, I had my coursework in January...people were still handing it in in May.

Ahh I see! Honestly, don't sweat it. I sat my AS in the January, which I think is much better as if you fail then you can just resist in June. But it's not a difficult exam. All I did was write out 3 perfect essays then learned them off by heart. The questions are always similar so you can always relate your answer to the question somehow. I did Alfie and Blowup for British cinema, then we did like American gangster films Goodfellas and Silent Enemy. Then I don't even remember the other question but you just need to know a lot of case files right? I remember compiling a load of information on indie British/American films and mainstream films. I'm sure you'll be fine AS is a doddle compared to A2!

Shockingly, it is! I got a high B in the A2 exam but I was the only one, one person got a C and literally everyone else got Es and Us, it was crazy! Count yourself lucky :P and good luck! You'll do fine I'm sure, just know what you're writing before you go into the exam and you'll get an A. Best of luck!

Hi Troy,

so do i basically in order to get top band, which looks peak on the grade boundaries you have to

analyse 2 scenes- refer to micro features and effect if neccesary

anlyse 2 scense of partner film - refer to micro features and effect if necessary

conclusion

* to get more marks also add theory like levi straus binary opposites and relevant contexual information

That's the problem we are learning about two British films for section B sean of the dead and four weddings then we put British characteristics and for section C we are doing stagecoach and Jesse James and we compare the social values of 1939 (stagecoach) to 2007 (Jesse James) my material just doesn't seem like a grade material!

We are doing blow up and if for our British in section b and we have to compare then goodfellas and public enemy for section c

The tips I have (from our tutor) are section a
Skills based
Refer to sources
Refer to films you've seen
Don't just use the sources
Academically add your opinion
Use terminology
link to question
If you do all that you should be okay

I have tips for part b and c if you want it
