For the Eduqas (WJEC) board 70% of your mark comes from two exams at the end of the course. The first, ‘Media Products, Industries and Audiences’, is two hours and 15 minutes whilst the second, ‘Media Forms and Products in Depth’, is two hours and 30 minutes. The first exam requires you to write not only about the set texts studied during the course but to compare these to unseen texts which require a broad knowledge of current media contexts. The second exam requires you to respond solely to questions based on the texts set by the exam board.
The remaining 30% of the mark comes from coursework based on a brief set by the exam board. You have the option to create an audio-visual cross-media production, a print cross-media production or an online cross-media production. You are required to produce written aims and intentions as well as the cross-media production itself.
