Yes we get the image of the Set Product the question is on. For the representation question in Section A, we also get an unseen resource to compare as well I think

Yeah ikr
There aren’t any past papers or anything to go off on either. But I guess we’re all in the same boat 😐

I see what you mean - but they will probably only be one markers so not that bad

Has everyone got their coursework marked? That's 30% of the grade so that's kinda reassuring

I got 57/60 on the coursework. Today, I am just working through the set products, including the industry and audiences sections. You should also note that there will be a 5 marker on context for one of the section A set pieces, which I was not aware of until a few days ago. Good Luck everyone.

It is the first year so it is almost impossible to predict. I am 80% sure the first question will not be on the "Quality Street" set piece, as that is the text used for the Sample Assessment Material. The second one is on Pride, so I doubt it will be that either.

For section B there are 2 stepped questions and they can use 2 out of 4 set products:
The Archers, The Sun, Pokemon Go, Spectre.
In the sample materials, the two they used were spectre and the archers so I'm pretty sure there will definitely be either The Sun or Pokemon Go

Here are the questions, sorry the text you have may be different but the questions topic will be the same:

Q1. Media language
Quality street OR this girl can

Q2. Representations
Film poster OR Magazine Covers + an unseen thing

Q3. Media Industries
Film (BBFC & ratings) OR Newspapers

Q4. Audiences

This year it’s likely to be:

This girl can
Film posters
Newspapers

No I don’t think anyone’s knows. As this is the first year for eduqas doing media with the new grade system (9-1). I’m assuming they will be quite high, as the boundaries were high with the old grade system, it was like 70% for an 8
