I took media studies for GCSE, and obtained an A*, that plus the fact i very much enjoy it have encouraged me to select it as one of a AS Level subjects. However, i am curious to find out what kind of things you study at AS Level, and is the difficulty standard alot higher than G.C.S.E. I am worried that i will not be able to cope with the work, please can somebody reply and tell me about the As Level AQA media studies course.

1stly i'd like to say don't start moaning if this has already been replied to or if it's 2 late, cos i don't really care.

i've just picked media up as an AS (cos i needed to pick up an AS) if u got an A* in gcse surely it can't change to the extent where you can't cope with the work however i didn't take it at gcse so i wouldn't know.

i've found it pretty much like english tbh, and also pretty boring tbh (tbh = to be honest). so far it's just been analsysis adverts and magazing articles and a few film clips with camera angle, use of images, layout, structure, design, language etc... etc... blar blar, we've yet to start out coursework but it involves creating a film trailor i think. or a short advert or something along those lines which sounds pretty fun i suppose.

anyways this will have prob been no use to you but meh.
www.mediaknowitall.com, is a pretty good website if u wanna check it out. just some advice in general now....i cruised past gcse without doing sack all work and when i got to AS levels i thought it would be the same as gcse pretty much, but i was sadly mistaken and had to do a couple of resits etc...so get working cos in A and AS level you've gotta get off your back and do your own research if you want a decent grade, or maybe that was just the teaching standard in our college i don't know lol.

anyways i've waffled on long enough now, cya later, Nath.

I got an A Grade in GCSE, but when I went on to do AS level Media Studies last year, I got a D The subject is harder, I won't lie to you, but work hard and you should be fine. I am resitting this thursday, and I am a lot more confident. Keep with the work load and study and you should be fine.
