This 42 page Revision Guide covers the whole of COMPONENT 2, SEC A in the GCSE EDUQAS Exam. The guide has been a 8 months in the making and consists of insights I have found teaching the EDUQAS specification this year. Moreover, the guide was created based on student feedback, areas of weakness I observed from that of my students during lessons/ mocks and content designed to stretch learners above the Grade 7. I decided to also offer an alternative to my 82 Page Revison Guide, which covers Section B also, should teachers have tuaght TV Crime but not the same Music Videos as me. For the full revision guide please consult my shop, if interested.

-There are a variety of tasks assigned to each form (which can be done in the boxes/pages provided in the booklet) which prompt students to apply newfound knowledge as well as ass retained knowledge of terms or theories they have learned about earlier in the guide. These tasks range from writing PEE exemplars based on an Exam style question to brainstorms, opinion/debate tasks and key considerations for the exam. These are ideal for H/W or Revision tasks and can be linked to tasks in class.
-An in-depth glossary at the start of each form on all of the RAIL elements. This changes each time, for each form/ RAIL topic).
NOTE: I am following EDUQAS Teaching Model 1 in my teaching/ SOW and my school is only providing Media Studies at A-Level, as a Two- Year Course. Moreover, each lesson has a task whereby students RAG (Red, Amber, Green) what they have learnt in the lesson against an Examiner checklist (Differentiation, peer assessment).
