The A-Level courseware focusses on getting students to apply analytical thought frameworks to understanding the audience, demographic representation, and context, as they interact with each other in discussions and debates. Students will be expected to be able to construct and deconstruct media products independently as they develop their own voice within the classroom and by engaging with Media in all its formats.

Media Studies A-Level finds its foundation in the current socio-political, cultural and economic environment that supports students in the study of English Literature, History, Political and Social studies.  Examinations are split 70/30 for the Edugas (WJEC) with the largest part (70%) of your mark is achieved with 2 exams, a 2 hour 15min exam – Media Forms, Industries and Audiences – and a 2 hour 30 min paper – Media Forms and Products in Depth. These exams cover the course texts in the first and texts set by the exam board.

30% of the course mark comes from an audio-visual cross-media production created by students based on the course work. Students have to produce the cross-media production and an accompanying written aim and intention piece for the exam board.

For students that would like a practical alternative to A-Level Media Studies, the BTEC in Creative Digital Media Production offers a practical alternative to the theory-based A-Level course. During the course work, students will be exposed to industry-standard equipment and software as they develop and produce media products like television advertisements, short films, and music videos. There is also an opportunity for the students to produce media products for a real-world client as represented by industry employers.
