GCSE Revised in Moving Image Arts

A guide to changes in GCSE Grading

GCSE in Moving Image Arts is a linear specification. It is available for first teaching from September 2014. We will make the first awards in 2016.

This is an applied qualification. Students develop knowledge, understanding and skills through practical demonstration in a context related to employability.

Students work on a range of creative, critical and technical tasks. These include planning and creating moving image products. This qualification builds on studentsí introduction to the moving image at Key Stage 3. It helps them to progress to further study and practice at GCE level.

Studying this specification, gives students opportunities to:

  • develop a critical understanding of film language, narrative, representation and audience in both theory and practice;
  • investigate and research others work and demonstrate the ability to analyse and evaluate creative purpose;
  • acquire knowledge and understanding of moving image genres and contexts;
  • develop ideas by investigating and experimenting with film-making techniques and processes;
  • develop the ability to manage resources, processes and equipment at different stages of moving image production;
  • create complete moving image products;
  • develop technical competence in using film-making techniques; and
  • evaluate the effectiveness of their practice as film-makers.
