Helloo,

Got my A2 Level results today... got a C in media studies and i was hoping to do better, and this was the highest in my class .. the thing is, out of over 200 people only 6 got an A. Most people got D/E's. After posting on another thread i got a msg from another member on here, he also thought there was something wrong with the media marks?! anyone else thought this at all?

xx

Yeah, I usually get A's in Media, and I got a D for this module. Everyone did badly in Media at my school. I don't think anyone got much above a D. Lots of people with E's and U's. I think they're sending them off to be remarked. Apparently it's something to do with harsh marking becauseof the recent attention to Media studies being a 'Mickey Mouse' A level, and an easy A.

My media teacher today was disappointed with the results. Had selected about 6 students to have theirs remarked. This did not include me but I put my case for a remark accoss well. so he said Ok if you feel that strongly about it and agreed to my request. (the school pay for the remarks!)

Ditto at my college. No one got above a B!

A few of us were really shocked at the results esp considering most of us were predicted A or B!

Seems to be trend....

after reading your profile and academic info, this line here
anyway, pleased to meet you, hope we can be friends i don't have many!!
couldn't be any further from the truth. Just relax, this isn't a competition.

EDIT - actually, after reading your past 6 posts, in combination with your profile, it seems way too obvious of what kind of a person you are. troll, surely?

do you have first hand knowledge of it being a rubbish subject??

english language is a completely different subject...its like saying "why take business studies? why not take physics instead?"

That's rude. You're the one appearing ignorant.

And it's spelt 'merely'.

I am aware of that, I've been told to "slang down" my writing when it comes to internet/text conversations so i fit in more, so I've been trying to spell things incorrectly, but not so people can realize, just so I can send a subliminal message that i am "normal".. if that makes sense?

Haha no it doesn't....if i were you and my aim was to "fit in more", i'd concentrate more on being slightly nicer.

You spell things wrongly on purpose so you appear "normal"? That's hard to believe...normal people can spell.

if i was to give any info, (to anyone) i would suggest you don't make your question/hypothesis too broad. keep it concise and focused on one thing, i got a D in my jan exam because i think mine was too broad and had so much to talk about in little time. i'm thinking now of just focusing my research on 2 films, (City of God and Carandiru 4 Brazilian Cinema).

I wrote out my answers with a bullet point for each paragraph. I put everything in the correct order with loads of statistics and any 'technical' language i thought i might forget. 4 pages is a huge amount, so u can literally write out ur whole exam beforehand, u dont have to just put the first few words. e.g if u want to write "It has been shown that 70% of children watch between 2 to 3 hours of television a day" put in ur notes, "70% kids - 2/3hrs tv"
