Hey guys,

In most subjects that i do, eg accounting, english, phyiscs, there is a clear cut mark allocation for theory/written responses. A ranking if you will, which details what type of answers get what marks.

I am yet to find the media mark allocation. In Media all questions are written, and there are roughly 65mrks for 2hrs writing time. I find little correlation between the amount of space provided to answer questions, and the mark allocated to the question. Some 3 mrk questions will have 5-6 lines for an answer, whereas a 5 mrk question may have a whole page.

I could probably fill in all allocated writing spaces, but not in the time provided. Are they looking for quality or quantity? How do i know how much to write to earn x no. of marks?

Cheers,

Patrick

Try reading the assessment reports and see if you can get anything out of them. Sorry that I can't help much - I'm not a media student.

I'm doing the media exam tomorrow as well.
I've done heaps of practice exams and generally I do fill the space, if not 3/4 of it at least. You should be able to have enough points studied in detail to be able to fill the space.
At the exam lecture I went to, it is quality over quantity. I have a girl in my class who writes triple what I can in the time period but I still achieve higher/same marks.
