This booklet is to support the preparation for the Unit 1 examination for AQA GCSE Media. This workbook will enable you to work through the series of sessions led by your teacher and help you to start thinking about the kinds of tasks you will be asked to undertake once you have the pre-release material from AQA.

At that point, you will be working independently on how to prepare to answer the 4 questions in the examination.

The final section of the workbook provides a series of possible research activities, some practice tasks and a glossary of relevant terms.

All of this material has been used in a large examination centre and proven very successful in preparing students of all abilities for examinations in Media Studies.
