For section A i suggest looking at past papers and creating a mind map so you are confident of what to write about for each answer.

For section B, well depending on what your cross media study is, do a mind map also to help you again be more confident.

I am also preparing myself for the exam on Thursday, and i also have no idea what to write about for most parts!

Hope I helped a bit

I have found a document online, which might be of interest for all A Level media students taking AS and A2 exams. This document is just outlining key theories to include in each question, such as, the audience, institution, representation and media forms. Basically, MEST 1 section A. Your teachers should have torture you at the start of the year. I've attached the link below:

This doc is a real life saver, especially the night before the exam!

Sorry I should have put taught (auto text) hay! Get on my nerves. If you aren't carefully, you might come out with something rude.

That's ok, all media students should stick together and help each other out. It sounds like my night at the moment as well! Everyone at sixth form is freaky out, but I'm as calm you would find me.

All the best for tomorrow, at 9:15am.

Could be advertising or privacy? To be honest there could be any type of questions that could come up from intertextuality to synergy.
