Section A – Answer structure

* You do not need to always refer to whether the representation conforms or confirms to stereotypes, use it when a relevant stereotype or attitude can be applied to the context (what’s happening in the scene).

* When you are explaining the whether it gives a negative or positive representation, rather than commenting “… therefore this give them a positive representation”, EVALUATE your analysis. So highlight to what extent is the representation negative or positive “… hence this creates a bit/quite/the most positive representation”.
