Hi, I'm starting college in September and am trying to choose my A-levels. So far I have chosen Drama, Politics and History. However, for my 4th A-level I'm interested in taking either film or media, but I'm struggling to find out about the differences between them in the courses etc. If anyone has any info or opinions that could help it would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there, i actually studied both a levels at sixth form around 2 years ago and i can say that media studies is more general and it relates to all types of media including tv shows, films, the music industry etc. Where as the film studies focuses on just films, by no means is it easy. I would compare film studies to English literature, its not just watching movies, theres alot of theory and writing but if your passionate about film it might suit you. Media was more fun i guess as it was more practical but at the end of the day its up to you. Didn't your college have taster days to see if the a level was right for you?
