A new colour edition of the best-selling GCSE course for the revised AQA (SEG) specification. The course is written by Chief Examiner Peter Wall and provides everything that students need to prepare for Media Studies. This course gives students the best chances of success.
The course gives comprehensive yet reassuring coverage of the requirements for media GCSE. The full range of media is explored with an up-to-date focus on new technologies.
The course gives unequalled support in its approach to case studies, practical production assignments and the controlled test. Key concepts of ‘reading’ different media ‘texts’ are fully explained, demonstrated and reinforced through stimulating examples and activities. The colour format further enhances students’ experience of media studies as an important and increasingly popular area of study at GCSE.
Preparation for the various modes of assessment is a particular strength, with dedicated sections on how to improve students’ skills in tackling the different tests/assignments. The on-line Controlled Test material provides resources which specifically support the year’s test topic.
