GCSE Media Studies 8572

About GCSE Media Studies 8572 Syllabus

An exciting and diverse specification

We’ve worked with media teachers and subject experts to create a qualification that contains engaging and relevant topics and themes, and gives you the freedom to create lessons that will inspire and motivate all your students. We’ve created a clear structure to our new GCSE, supported by a detailed specification that provides clarity over what you need to deliver.

Media is a contemporary and interactive subject which encourages students to develop their creative, analytical, research, and communication skills, through exploring a range of media forms and perspectives.

Clear, well-structured exams, accessible for all

We realise that many students choose GCSE Media Studies for its relevance to their lives and for the opportunities it provides for exploring contemporary issues through the use of different media in creative and practical ways. That’s why we’ve made our written assessment clear, well-structured and easy for students to understand. Students will enjoy the variety of question styles, which include multiple choice, short and extended answer.

We’ve created exciting non-exam assessment briefs that provide you with clear guidance and support to help your students to create media products which they can be truly proud of.

Clear progression to A-level, higher education and beyond

We’ve bridged the gap between GCSE, AS and A-level, giving your students the skills and experience to better prepare them for the demands of AS and A-level if they choose to progress with their study.
