The Edusites programme of study for GCSE Media has been designed to provide a Core Unit for each term to help students develop the right level of knowledge and understanding of the key critical approaches and all the framework concepts of narrative, genre, representations, and spectatorship. The Exam Board Set Products are covered throughout the programme (detailed on the individual exam board pages) and supporting NEA exemplar materials.
