Course programme

Course Content: For the examined unit, Investigating Media, you will analyse a piece of media in the exam, as well as answering general questions on the media. For the coursework unit, Creating Media, you will produce two interlinked media products. How will I be assessed? At AS Level, you will complete one examined unit and one coursework unit. Each is worth 50% of the overall AS grade. Are there any additional costs or specialist equipment required? Whilst all equipment required for the course is available for loan from the College, you will be required to provide your own stationery and SD card. What can I do after this course? To progress to A2 Level, you must achieve a minimum of grade D or above on the AS Level. With the right grades and combination of A-levels, you can go on to study university degrees in a range of media subjects such as film, television and journalism or you can pursue a media-related career.
