Reading to Access Media Texts - Mark Schemes for sample mocks

Hi all, Here is a compilation of some mark schemes made for sample Media Text Mocks I also compiled a while back. I’ve included the mocks just in case you can’t locate them on my shop. Hopefully this makes marking easier - it also is a good basis for creating sample PEE chains with the students. I use it with the sample matrix that CCEA provided in the SAM document.
