GCSE Media Studies WJEC exam board

I have created this document for revision of the WJEC media studies exam on the 14th June. All of the information is from either the WJEC GCSE revision guide for 2012 or my own media studies revision from school and home. This revision tool is hopefully at the highest standard and if they are any mistakes/mistold information, please comment below. Please don't pass this revision guide off as your own as this took many hours to complete. This would be disrespectful to my work so please just revise from it.

Thank you, good luck revising!
