    I doubt it, but I may be wrong. In part (iii) the question wasn't specific enough, as it may have been an Order in Council as well as an SI. However, from what I have heard from other students, part (ii) is probably an Order in Council, not an SI, although many have different answers for it. We will only know on the results day, unfortunately.
    I put iii as an SI using the reasoning that a school curriculum will have a national effect and a minister in education would be appropriate to implement this. That left me with part ii as OIC although I didn't know the reasoning behind it

    So did I, but only because (iii) resembled the situation with the Education Act 1944 which affected the whole country and allowed the Education Minister to change the school leaving age, and it was an SI. Let's hope that just mentioning OiC would give us 3 marks in (ii)

    Fairly sure you're right, but who knows until the mark scheme comes out because there's some people have put OIC and some put SI. I can understand the reasoning behind both, but most likely it's OIC as another was definitely Stat. Instrument.

    Cii is 15 marks so if you didn't answer it then you're limited to 45 out of a possible 60.

    Well for the second situation I also wrote orders in council, and for the third situation I wrote statutory interpretation.

    Did anyone even do the question on interpretation? It looked well easy, but because I didn't expect it, I didn't revise for it. That was sneaky.

    Most resitters from last year at my college chose that question. We don't study EU so last year they had to do the stat question and I assume learnt it much better this year and therefore chose it.

    No it doesn't, but only putting 2 advantages might not get you top marks. They can't mark you down for what you have written, but they also can't mark you up for something that isn't there.

    Being a resitter myself, I am physically sick of statutory interpretation, especially because the list of advantages/disadvantages is too brief and bullet-point like.

    Personally, i thought it went really well. For Question B i got the following:

    Bi = By Law
    Bii = Order In Council
    Biii = Statutory Instrument.

    Does anyone have an idea of what the grade boundaries will be? Surely they cannot go any higher than last year as they where ridiculous.

    Everyone is going to go against me and tell me I'm wrong, but for the part b questions I put Bylaw, Enabling Act and then Statutory Instruments. For the second one, I put an Enabling Act BECAUSE it said about transferring powers to a minister. So the only form of DL which does that is the enabling act. I did think of Orders in Council, however the question did not mention the queen or the privy council, or that it had to be passed quickly or In emergency. I thought that the question was very misleading.

    Totally understand why you put that. It did cross my mind. I guess we'll have to see when the mark scheme comes out.

    I realised I didn't make any reference to the sources since they weren't of much help when answering the questions... Will I lose out on marks if wrote all the points that were meant to be mentioned?
    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you will lose marks for not referencing the source, because the question specifically asks you to. It won't be a drastic drop though, I imagine it'll be similar to the level 4 limiters in G151.
    Try not to worry too much, if your answers were correct you should still pass without referring to the source. It'll just probably keep you out of the top marks.

    Were we required to put source refs in every answer or just in some parts? Don't remember mentioning any in cii.

    My teacher was an examiner for years and is still friends with a chief examiner.
    She recommends you slip a reference in every question, even the sub sections. I'm not sure whether it's compulsory to though. I just always have because she said to.

    As I said though, even if you're forgotten, unless you're applying somewhere prestigious it shouldn't be too earth crushing as you'll still pass. I hope it all goes well for you in summer
