MEST1 Section A and B – AQA grade A exemplar

May 21, 2014

The following student gained 55 marks out of 80 overall in the June 2012 examination, with only 30/48 marks on Section A, but an impressive 25/32 marks on the Section B Cross-Media Study question. In section A, the response to question 1 (Media Forms) is highly competent and focuses well on the text, but the other answers are less tightly focused and question 4 (Media Audiences) in particular loses focus on the question and ends up bogged down with regurgitating theories without linking to the text or question.

However, despite the focus on only two films and barely including all three platforms with a brief mention of print, Section B is much stronger and makes better use of the theories, issues and debates.
