I think this is an excellent resource. Some really lovely and thought-provoking questions which set students well to prepare for live examinations.

D Soltysik, Teacher of Media & Peer Reviewer

Brilliant! The questions are very useful and all come with mark schemes. There are so few past papers for the first year group it’s both supportive for students and staff. The questions are varied and for all abilities. It has been really supportive for a new specification and has saved me so much time. Perfect match for the specification Eduqas Media Studies.

Absolutely brilliant! A life saver! It makes setting exams for mocks much easier. There are no other papers (other than the SAMS) for students to tackle. It gives them realistic ideas of what is expected in the exams. I have been using ZigZag for years, and have never been let down. Easy to use and time saving. Very thankful for this resource.

H Parmenter, HoD & Peer Reviewer

Very useful… gives teachers and students a good understanding of the range of questions that might be used in the exams… I liked the range of unseen texts that were used and the variety of questions. I also think the indicative content is very valuable for teachers and staff as it reinforces student's learning and can help to guide them in how to structure their answers. I think the exam tips are also important and the mark schemes, as students can see how marks are awarded and start to understand that they also need to ensure their explanation and analysis is presented clearly, rather than just learning and repeating facts about the texts… [This resource] would save a lot of planning time and can be easily used for assessment points and homework.

I like that the paper is formatted like the Eduqas papers and follows the same question structure. I think a practice set like this has many advantages of furthering teacher practice and enabling learners to test their knowledge of the media industry.
