LayoutContent

Introduction Two lines stating the production(s) you will be discussing.

Body Paragraph 1 1a. Discuss your foundation portfolio through to your advanced portfolio in relation to one thing (in each paragraph) that you did in both, but have improved and advanced in, during the A2 year.

1b. Discuss your chosen production in relation to a theorist, using evidence from your production to show whether you conformed or subverted the theorists suggestions.

Body paragraph 2

Body paragraph 3

Conclusion2/3 lines suggestion how you developed through the things you have stated in the main body of each essay.

1a Tips 1b Tips

• For each paragraph, mention both portfolios, indicating how you did something in the first year, and improved your approach in the second.

• Introduce what the theorists said; don’t assume the examiner knows the theories, plus it’s a test of your knowledge – show them what you know!

• Be explicit with evidence; the examiner hasn’t seen your work.

• Be explicit with evidence; the examiner hasn’t seen your work.

• Complete each paragraph with a summary of how these changes benefited you production and your own development; how did your work improve?

• Only discuss ONE production; not both.

Examiner’s Report 2013

• Read through the section A report; do not worry about references to Propp’s ‘spheres of action’, hegemony (position of power or leadership) and Hall’s dominant, oppositional and negotiated – these are all possible theorists and theories; we have selected a focused, relevant group to discuss.

Page 5: 1a and 1b Final Exam Revision

1A is about the process from AS to A2 and what you have learnt in that time; what

decisions did you make and how did they benefit your work at A2.

1B is about analysing evidence from your production with relation to whether in

conforms to the theories which should relate with the concept you’ve been given (genre,

narrative etc…)

1a. Outnumbered

The question was about digital technology and creativity.

• Creativity – thinking outside of the box; coming up with original ideas.

• Quality – how good something is.

Students were mistaking the idea that if your A2 was

better than your AS production, that the

improved quality automatically made it

creative.
