This is for all students who are going to sit the Broadcast Regulation exam.

Even if you didn't do the mock (boo). Particularly if you didn't sit the mock. 

Please come to the big UG newsroom on the first floor, G1-04 at 1pm today, Monday 5 March.

Richard

PS I am attaching the marking guide to sample exam 3, the mock, which has model answers, and another sample exam, number 1, with both a marking guide and model answers.

Why a 15-minute long comedy performance at an Australian film festival meant so much to me

Feb
28

A few weeks ago whilst blissfully wasting time on YouTube (because let’s face it who isn’t wasting time if they’re on YouTube unless they’re midway through an extensive video tutorial to fix their laptop) I came across a video I really didn’t expect to see. It was a live performance by Tim Minchin at Tropfest 2018, a prestigious short film festival in Australia. Now presented at face value, this live performance wasn’t anything out of the ordinary.

NO COURT REP CLASS TODAY. ATTENTION YEAR 2s AND MAs

Feb
28

As you know Medway campus is closed today so no Court Reporting class. If any of you would like to write answers to any of the questions on the current test paper feel free to email them to me for feedback.  If campus is open tomorrow and you can make it in, there are copies of the next test paper in Nicola's office on top of the filing cabinet in a blue box file marked "Sarah".  And don't forget there are two test papers - with marking guides - on the NCTJ student resources website. Let's keep fingers crossed for Friday's classes!
