DRAFT SPECS and Upcoming events!

DRAFT A level and GCSE specifications and specimen assessment materials for both Film Studies and Media Studies are now online; these drafts went to Ofqual earlier this week and the exam boards expect to hear back with any changes requested in September (for Film) and October (for Media). The MEA has asked Steve Connolly, from Bedfordshire University, to produce an independent comparison of all the draft specs and we will publish his findings in September, ahead of any ofqual feedback!

Meanwhile, we suggest you download the PDFs and mull them over on the beach! Enjoy…
