Moral panics, social construction of news and gender came up last year.

I feel like news ownership and something to do with social class or effects of the media. Age and class haven't come up for a while.

SCLY3 I'm thinking - audience models, representations of disability and feminist views of the media.

SCLY4 - Corporate/State crime, control & punishment, and for T&M either Policy or Postmodernism.

For SCLY3 Media I think the 18 mark question could be New media or News values etc. 33 mark questions could be Marxist/Pluralist views, or representations of gender/disability/ethnicity, or even News again. I agree the 9 mark could be on audience effects and I never rule out Globalisation - that seems to pop up all the time.

For SCLY4 21 mark state/corporate crime, subcultural, age/ethnicity or even suicide. 15 mark - questionnaires, 33 mark postmodernism or social policy, although I've not ruled out Interactionism

Thanks for replying, I'm hoping ownership comes up and that they repeat construction of the news. I haven't covered representations because its come up twice, i was just wondering what everyone else thought

I doubt they would repeat the construction of news as I have looked through past questions and they always alternate between the two every year - there hasn't been a year where they have included both of them though.

Age and class has only come up twice so I feel like one of those will come up. Also after looking through past questions, they have always put:

- one on ownership or social construction of news
- one on social groups (ethnicity/gender/age/class)
- one on the other topics (effects on wider society/direct and indirect effects/research methods/moral panics)
