    Good luck for tomorrow everyone! I'm hoping AQA have decided to play it nice this year in terms of the scenarios we get.

    Have you learnt all 3 essays or just non fatal offences, say the truth as you seem like an intelligent and diligent person

    Nope. It's the least likeliest, it was on last year. Likely to be non-fatals then general defences then murder/manslaughter.
    Gedgar say the truth have you learnt all 3 essays or just NFO

    The scenario will always contain some non fatal offences whether the evaluation is on them or not. The scenario is always split into non fatal offences and murder/manslaughter

    Unit 4 (Property Offences) only include Self-Defence, Intoxication and Duress. Nothing else, all the same cases explanations etc.

    In law unit 3, what do you talk about in the secind paragraph of a scenario? For example if its a murder question: then youd talk about murder and then either loss of control or diminished responsibility and thats it? Or is there more to it?

    Da*** you up at 3am for ?

    It can be on muder, involuntary manslaughter, or both. If it's on murder there may be a defence of LOC or DR. If it's both its unlikely there will be a defence though don't rule it out.

    Pick two defences, one that has barely any criticisms/problems and one that has quite a few. Ive revised DR and Self Defence as DR has got quite a good amount of criticisms and reforms while self defence has only a few issues with it. You only ever need reforms for one of the defences so for example with the ones id be using, I'd only do reforms for DR.
    To remember it quick I'd say write it all down on flash cards but make it as compact as possible so you're not learning full on sentences, just points that will make up your paragraphs in the exam

    For the defences essay you can't use DR

    Dude, diminished responsibility isn't a general defence. If that's what you have along self defence in the evaluation, you won't get any credit for anything pertaining to DR.

    Does anybody have any real reforms for DOC/LC other than proposal for removal in favour of the three tier system?
