I liked it too tbf! I loved tv crime drama and video games, but I felt the magazine questions were more vague 😭I for the second question on decoding and I don’t know if I focused on question enough

I did Vogue and Woman’s Realm and whilst there were loads of binary oppositions for WR and I genuinely couldn’t think of enough for modern Vogue because it’s like all women 💀 I hate reception too, and it was so vague so I’m hoping my other two questions went better

i was the most confident for video games and i thought the questions were great for that section, i did gta and the sims 4, but i should’ve answered the stereotypes one instead of the gender one💔by the time i got to that tho i was getting delirious so i don’t think my answers were making sense😍the tv one was fine too i think, i did the historical one instead of the european because in inspector morse i just talked about how women were marginalised, it’s just the magazine section that threw me off completely because they chose the worst theories possible😩it was so theory heavy tho i thought, i revised industry because they usually throw that in but there was none i was so annoyed

i was literally so annoyed because they always bring industry into it in every past paper there’s ever been so i revised it so hard that i neglected the theories and content😩then it turned out to be structuralism which i didn’t revise because i was like there’s no way it’ll come up

I studied gta as well as assassins creed, I went with assassins creed and sims for my video games- I wish did stereotypes too! But honestly didn’t think it through. I did European cause I barely studied my historical 💀and I’m so glad industry didn’t come up because I barely revised it ngl
