The following resource was created for students as a document with all the elements of the exam and theory outlined, with the intention of including content for all abilities with a close focus upon A* content. All content is based upon my knowledge of the SCI-FI genre, the subject and contains easy ways to remember key theories that I have created and used within my own study of the subject as well as within the classroom.
This is a perfect resource for the 2016 GCSE Media studies exam, the topic being that of SCI-FI films. My students are currently using this resource and have stated how useful and easy to understand it is. This can be used as both a resource within lessons as well as a document for students to use for revision. The revision guide also contains tasks and practice materials, as well as a full breakdown of the exam and what questions may potentially come up on the exam.
