    I was just wondering if anyone has any predictions for Q1a and Q1b, or in regards to the predictions for the'Collective Identity' part of the paper? I'm really struggling with revision, help!

    how should i revise for the exam?
    Section A (just revise theories)
    Section B (just remember examples and theories)
    Is that a good way? I mean what else can you do for Section A since you havent seen the item and how should I revise for the examples you have to give in question 2 and 3 (shall i just keep on track with media issues?)

    I made queue cards with all the theorists for 1A and B on with their names on the front and theories on the back (inc. which questions I can use them for).

    I would recommend writing out the essay because we know what they'll be (there may be slight change in language but you basically write the same thing every time).

    I would revise the theories and theorists in conjunction with your own work so in your notes write down the theory, theorists and how you would link it to your product. i.e...

    Roland Barthes- Semic Code - broken mirror in music video connoting loss of identity

    Jean Baudrillard - the author is dead - intertextual references to the shinning

    ect.

    Good luck:P

    Cue cards will be good!
    I basically made google docs for Section A (Theorists only) then Section B with theory about case study and examples from Broadcast,E media and print
    and whats ur structure for section B?
    I do intro (history etc with point)
    2 points for and 2 against
    then conclusion

    Section 1A = no theorists
    Section 1B = theorists (Barthes, Hall, Propp, etc)
