    My college contacted me today saying that my exam script has arrived. I'm so nervous about it because it's being marked by both my teachers right now.

    Day 7

    Today i did some work on A2 business studies and i actually found it pretty hard. The step up to A2 from AS is pretty big. But anyway i studied half of a huge topic in global business called globalisation, as it is all we have learned in A2 business so far.

    So i have now finished all my notes for business and economics and so far I'm feeling quite good about them both.

    Day 9

    Today i continued to look over my law notes. I read up on unit 1 law all about criminal courts and lay people, delegated legislation and statutory interpretation. I'm not going to bother recapping unit 2 law because i passed that exam and the only thing relevant from it for next year is establishing negligence, and non fatal offences, which i know quite well.

    But all this was done in brief, but new notes on all of this will be being made starting the new academic year from the 8th september

    Today i did an essay on involuntary manslaughter (UAM and GNM). I'm really happy with my first attempt and i included a lot of cases, so it should get a good mark.

    For business and economics I intend to write out all my notes twice as revision before christmas and every weekend i will do a past paper and annotate the specification. In January I'll annotate the specification and write down in order my weakest to strongest topics and focus on these again continuing with past papers and specification annotation at the weekend. In April i intend to do pure Past papers on the weekday and annotate the specification whilst watching revision videos on youtube.

    For law I'm doing essays every single day of the week up until the exam and on a saturday and Sunday i am going to be going through all the cases and points of law learnt in a week and apply them to tricky scenarios

    For Economics, on past papers you just pick out the specific questions relating to topics? Considering that we don't have many past papers.

    Thank you for your replies.

    About 20 minutes for the questions and about 10 minutes to find an internet article. When your doing the essays it's all about the understanding and linking everything together to make a perfect response.

    You need to read the question, what is it actually asking you for? Everything they want is on the specification, so learn it and understand it inside out. Also peoples application in responses seems to be weak, it should flow with your point. Without good application there can be no good analysis and try to use figures because they're easy to evaluate.

    UCAS Applications

    Okay so for university i intend to study law because i want to become a criminal barrister. My applications will be to;

    University of Law - BBB
    LSE - A*AA
    Lancaster - AAA
    Westminister - ABB
    Kingston - BBC

    I thought i would go for quite a broad range as you never know what will happen next year. But the one I really want to go to is the university of law
    If you're predicted A*AA I really wouldn't apply to unis asking for anything below AAB/ABB. I'm sure all your choices, except LSE, will be in clearing so use your other for choices for A*AA-AAB courses. You only have 5 so make them count!
