‘This is a brilliant response to the changing demands of Media Studies teaching… a really useful revision tool. I liked the immediate results and the opportunity to retake the test immediately. I also really liked the decreasing scale of the points available for correct answers and retakes. I also like the variety of the tasks available as they can appeal to different groups of students at different abilities and stages in their revision process… Students can monitor their own progress and see where their weakspots are… From a teacher’s perspective, SLT are always asking for lists of revision topics, and this does it in one fell swoop. Invaluable I would say. It interprets the spec really well, particularly the exam style questions at the end. If students complete those, then there is no better way for them to revise. I really would encourage all media centres to buy this resource. Terminology is the key to achieving at GCSE Media Studies, and this ensures students have a firm grasp of the required specifics.’ – K Chanter, Media Teacher & Independent Reviewer

The exam is at the centre of it and all work is relevant and yet interesting… Opportunities for peer assessment are well-directed and clear… each type of question is dealt with thoroughly… Enables pupils to know what the examiner is looking for and how to get the marks. The exploration of how meaning is created through construction and editing gives the kids an A* approach to textual analysis… The Web-Based Drama work is excellent… every conceivable relevant theory is there to give them the edge in the exam… As an educational resource I wouldn’t want to be without it!
I could hand it to an NQT and be sure they were following the curriculum to the letter. As a classroom teacher, it would give me everything I need to teach this unit thoroughly. What a wonderful resource!!! – K Chanter, Head of Media Studies & Independent Reviewer (previous edition)



We loved the teaching pack and the online revision that I purchased earlier in the year for my son’s Media Studies. His grade went from a D in the mocks to a high B in the June exam. I wish we had found your resources earlier! – H Thomas, Parent & Customer (2013 edition)
