Like with the GCSE Media Studies tracker in my shop, this too is all you would need to accurately report grades for your post 16 media studies groups following the LEGACY AQA SPECIFICATION.
There are three tabs included on this spreadsheet depending on the routes being taken by the students in your group:
- Those resitting some AS modules alongside A2 modules. This allows input for all 4 units alongside existing results from Y12. Each unit is broken down into different areas for possible marks and each unit is also converted into an overall grade based on JUNE 2017 boundaries.
- Those only completing A2 units this year. This allows input for unit 3 and 4 broken into each mark, alongside each students certified AS results. Calculations will be made totalling scores from the marks already achieved alongside the new units being completed as the year goes on. Overall A level grades are produced using this data.
- Those students who are only entering for AS Media Studies legacy spec this year with the intention of dropping at the end of the year (otherwise you would be entering them for the NEW spec). Individual boxes are there to enter marks for each question/mark of each component and overall AS grades are calculated based on JUNE 2017 boundaries.

On each tab there is also an additional column - the buffer. Here I have made the boundaries 10% tougher in case of a surprise grade boundary increase in June 2018. This could help identify those who are only just toughing each grade and who may benefit from a few more marks on their coursework or extra revision to ensure they are comfortably into each grade boundary and so avoids any nasty surprises on results day.

I have used these trackers (alongside the ones produced for English) for several years with great success. Not only can you monitor the progress of you group, but they are invaluable when reporting at parents evening and students love to be able to see exactly where they have marks, what grade each unit is on and where they can gain more marks to achieve success.

This tracking sheet really is a must for ALL media departments!

If you do purchase and are happy with my work, please leave a positive review so others are more likely to come across this product in TES searches. If you experience any issues, please contact me at steel123@hotmail.com and I will happily try and resolve it. Likewise, similar trackers are available in my shop for GCSE AQA Media Studies and GCSE 9-1 AQA English Literature and Language. I am in the process of writing trackers for the new 9-1 Eduqas Media Studies as well as AQA English language, English Literature and English Lang and Lit A levels, so subscribe for updates for these subjects.

Enjoy!
