MS1 Exam with WJEC

Discussion in 'Media studies' started by sianigirl, May 17, 2011.

  1. Hi, my little darlings have just gone to sit their exam but I teach and can't go into the room to look at the paper! What was test they had to analyse! I know it was print based!

    The theme was old age, and they had to analyse two magazine covers. SAGA with Michael Caine on the front, and GQ with Clint Eastwood on the front.
    Question 3 was 'explore reps of age in media'
    Hope that helps

  3. Thanks for that!

    All that last minute prep on Newspapers for nothing!!!
  4. Any Idea on what the questions were for 2?

    Sorry...i was too lazy to put them im yesterday! :)
    a) study the front cover of GQ. suggest two diff audiences for this mag
    b) study the front cover of SAGA aimed at people over 50. Explore how this audience has been targeted
    c) with ref to you own detailed examples, explore how media texts target diff audiences.

    Not for nothing. Just because it wasn't examined doesn't mean it was a waste of time. "Exam is all" culture in action...
