Hey guys,
Wanted to know from those who did or are currently doing as/ a level Film studies, how are you finding it? I searched online and there were hardly any resources dedicated to film studies which shocked me, leaving me to wonder if it was a struggle to know what the examiners wanted. Do you find your course time consuming, do you love it, is it difficult for you and with grade boundaries do you think that they are fair?

Hey, I am good.

Maybe you could ask your friends outside of school who do it what it is like etc or just get more ideas on here.

You should do what you want to do.

I hope things work out.

Personally I find it very easy, some parts of the theory can be challenging but basic media terminology and and English literature approach should do you fine for the exams. I've just taken the AS level WJEC exams and I thought overall the questions were fine, however the exam is lengthy (2hrs 30). Overall if you put the time and dedication into it you should come out with a good grade, the coursework is 40% and the exam is split into 3 sections - 3 40 mark essays all on different aspects of film with an A roughly 34/35 per essay. Hopefully you'll enjoy your choice!

I don't take it myself but know an absolute film fanatic who loves the course to bits!
My advice is that if you have a general love and interest in films, also perhaps if you want to use it in the future, then you will be able to enjoy the course.
He also tends to get really good grades in it, so if you have a big love I think you can achieve.
