      • The strengths and weaknesses of candidates in the treatment of individual areas Rationales are often a poorly understood and executed aspect of the independent study. It is essentialthat candidates get their rationales "right" in context of framing the spine and direction of the argument in the script. It is very rare to find a great script that has a poor rationale. The names of films are on the coversheet and do not need to be repeated in the rationale which is only supposed to be 100 words. Therefore every word should be meaningful in posing and clarifying the argument. A good rationale is one that is anchored in cinema history or theory, is expressed in film language and is clear and achievable.It is essentialthat teachers spend a lot of time in helping candidates frame rationales that achieve these aims.
