Same, especially because in my schoo, media studies had the lowest pass rate. That really gives me confidence lol

So far we have looked at basic media terms and a few theories suck as Propps character types and the binary opposites theory. We have looked at the quality street advert that is going to be in the exam, aswell as a 'this girl can' advert. We are now on Spectre, but the teacher is structuring the lessons really weird so I don't actually know what is supposed to be in the exam.

Your grades are based on exams and (something like 40%) is graded on a media that you created like a film trailer or magazine

I wouldn’t say easy, you still had to work very hard in the actual exam. But i can definitely see where they did make it even more difficult!
