Revision to the Eduqas AS (B680QS) and A level Media Studies (A680QS) specifications
In response to feedback from teachers and Exams Officers, we have made a minor amendment to the assessment of Component 1, Section A. In the Component 1 examination, across Section A as a whole, there will always be one unseen audio-visual resource and one unseen print-based resource; Question 1 will relate to the audio-visual resource and Question 2 will relate to the print-based resource.
A revised version of the specifications, Version 2 August 2018, can be found on the Eduqas website. The changes are detailed on page 22 of the A level specification and page 20 of the AS level specification.
