The subject requires students to closely analyse and compare media products in relation to relevant key social, cultural, economic, political and historical contexts. Not every question in every exam series will require the analysis of the five contexts but students will need to be familiar with all of them in relation to a range of media products. Knowledge and understanding should be developed through the practical analysis or creation of media products. The subject content is detailed in relation to each area of the theoretical framework.
