I'm unsure on what the predictions are, do you have your case studies at least from 3 industries?

I think in section B there may be two narrative questions.
Id prefer:
-Genre
-Internet
-Narrative
-Representation

Section A is text and Section B is Industry and Audience. So Section A is where you get the representation and narrative questions and Section B is where you get marketing, regulations, social media, digital technolgies and appeals questions.

my thoughts are that i will use film for the A1 question, then tv for audience and advertising for regulation/marketing.

You need a total of 9 different case studies from 3 different industries (e.g. Film industry, music industry etc.) And you can only use 1 industry to answer each question.
So for section A (representation, narrative, genre) You have to use 3 case studies of the same industry to answer it depending on the question asked (so 3 contrasting films or 3 tv programmes that show representation/genre or narrative)
It doesn't matter which industry you choose for the question, just make sure you know how to answer it with your case studies.

For Section B you need 6 case studies that focus on marketing, distribution, production and audience (3 for audience, 3 for industry). Make sure you talk about audience in both section B questions even if you choose a question specific to either audience or industry issues or you could get marked down.


Hope this helped ^.^ Good luck

I predict that Section A will be Genre and Representation questions. Section B will be broad, i have a feeling that all 4 questions will cover different topics.

I'm confident in all Section A questions, I just hope that Section B will have two audiece questions.

Yeah it's literally any two you want to answer. So if audience came up twice, I could answer both the questions.
