A AND AS LEVEL FILM STUDIES

(WJEC specification)

Studying AS and A Level Film offers students the opportunity to watch, discuss and analyse film as both a cultural innovation and a major art form. This is an academic and literate qualification in a subject that is studied at degree level, or forms a valuable part of other degrees at major universities across the country. It would particularly suit students wishing to study all forms of English, Media or humanities subjects at degree level.


The AS and A Level qualifications have been ‘uncoupled’ in the latest educational reform, but the WJEC specification has been designed to ensure that no films or genres studied at AS Level will be wasted, as they are also required for the A Level examinations at the end of the Upper Sixth.
AS Level Course
There are two examined components and one coursework unit at AS Level. Students will study six films in detail, and have experience of others within the relevant genres.
Component 1: American Film – 35% of the AS – 1 hour 30 minute examination
Section A will comprise a 2 part question, requiring reference to two Hollywood films, one produced between 1930 and 1960, and the other between 1931 and 1990.

Section B will include one two-part question based on one contemporary American independent film (post 2010). There is a choice of question in the second part of each question.
Component 2: European Film – 35% of the AS – 1 hour 30 minute examination
Section A: British Film (two film study)

One two-part question, requiring reference to two recent British films.



Section B: Non-English language European film.

One two-part question, requiring reference to one non-English European film.

There is a choice of question in the second part of each question.
Component 3: Production – 30% of the AS – Non-exam assessment
This consists of one production and its accompanying analysis.
The production is worth 20% and must be:


  • Either an extract from a film highlighting narrative construction (2½ to 3½ minutes long)

  • Or a screenplay for an extract from a film highlighting narrative construction of between 1200 and 1400 words, plus a digitally photographed storyboard of a key section from the screenplay (approx. 1½ minutes’ screen time, corresponding to 15 story board shots).


Evaluative Analysis (10%): 1000-1250 words analysing your own production in comparison with other professionally produced films or screenplays
