A-level Media Studies: CSP booklet and equality, diversity and inclusion changes for 2024

Published: Wednesday 1 Jun 2022

Teachers can access the Close Study Product (CSP) booklet for the 2024 exam series in Resources>Assessment and training>Preliminary material on Centre Services, our secure extranet, from 1 June 2022.

The CSPs can be given to students when they start their course of study.

To ensure that what your students are covering is relevant, we’ve updated nine of the products. We’re also working hard to make sure our qualifications represent the diversity of knowledge and human experience we value – as well as reflecting all the different communities of teachers and students we serve. We’ve chosen these because of the rich opportunities they’ll offer our teachers and students to explore a diverse range of products.
