First time using this. But I need help- For section BI think I'm going to focus on my Identity case study.
But I was wondering if Female Celebrities in the media is too broad but then I think I could mention a lot with it- like Kim K using the male gaze, apply 3rd wave feminism to more tom-boyish female celebs etc. But what if the questions are different where mentioning these things wouldn't make sense? idk I'm confused a little. I gotta revise some theories too if I'm using female celebrities.

Also, what key words do you think the exam board will use in the two identity questions?!

Thanks guys.

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

Hi! I'm doing this exam too and I'm struggling on how to possibly revise for this section!
Some good advice given to me is to ALWAYS answer the question THEN support with your chosen case study, so even if the question isn't directly about female identity, I'm sure you could still back it up form your own research?
Also, if you pick texts from different institutions you're already showing a much wider span of your knowledge when it comes to answering the question?

I'm not too sure really what the key wording in the question will be either, difficult when its a whole new subject!

Hope I could help and if you have any advice, it would be much appreciated if you could share.

Thanks!

I always hate the case studies in Media. I'm doing YouTube for the digital age case study. Don't worry your case study should be fine! It is just a case of finding a worm hole into answering the question and using your case study. But, if you are nervous, I would recommend having a spare case study on the other section if it isn't too late for you? Good luck!
