In GCSE Media Studies, students will learn to develop their creative, analytical, research and communication skills, through exploring a range of media forms and perspectives. Students are required to study media products from various forms of media including television, film, radio, newspapers, online and social media, video games and music videos. The skills of inference, analysis and evaluation are vital as students are asked to explore how the media represents the world and portrays events, issues, individuals and social groups.
