    You need to know key theory in order to apply it to the context they give you and having at least 2 studies for each subtopic will give you enough for longer 10 mark questions... for example two studies on positive effects of video games and two for the negative.
    You just need to remember key points and practice any style of question that you think could come up in the media part.

    For application questions, learn the key points and do as many practice papers as you can for them. There is really no other way to revise for application questions. This is exactly how I revise for law as for the application questions

    Hi, that helps a lot, I'm going to learn about 2 studies for each now and use them to answer past paper questions

    Thanks I'll do that, I was going to learn like massive essays for each topic in media, but I think thats not a good way of being able to apply it, I'm going to make note of the key points and use them
