True
I've never been so confused about revising a subject
My teacher has taught my class to memorise the information instead of how to write it down in a question

At least your teacher taught you something. Mine says your grades, your life- your problem if you fail.:bawling:

How can your teacher say that?? It's literally their job to teach you - it's in the name

If you do need help you could message me. Although we may not have the same exam board, something has to be similar 😂

I'm doing OCR - the vaguest exam board I've ever encountered when it comes to Media
True, idk if your school does this but if you fail the first year you can't enter the second year so I have to be kind of worried XD

My school doesn't do this because no one wants to do media and 95% of everyone doing media are people who didn't get there first choice. Me being a part of the 95 %.
Check out other exam boards and look at the OCR scheme of work.

Just done my media mocks and would definitely recommend using Seneca learning. You can sign up for free and they have every topic for each exam board. (I do aqa).

Past paper questions are also good and for me, I found them on the aqa site. Questions in the test tend to be related to what comes up and are good for having a rough example of what to expect.

what I did for my mock in december was having full knowledge of theorists ideas and tried using them on any newspaper. This helps your application and allows you to be more open minded. For question 3 in OCR I wrote all the key notes for all types of contexts that would be asked. For question 4 I used the academic ideas provided by OCR to remember some arguments for most of them. I also did two past papers which were marked by my teacher which allowed me to focus on the mistakes I had made so I can remember to not repeat them. For paper 2 I am currently just attempting to remember the key information and stats needed for the questions. I would say for OCR that paper 1 is mainly just focusing on your application of theory, whereas paper 2 is testing your knowledge and understanding of industry and audiences.

DEFINITELY seneca. You can revise the whole course from your exam board. Practice writing as this will also help (questions can be found on the exam board website or maybe on tsr?)
