    Not a bad paper today!

    I did scenario one:

    01) I discussed basic theft, blackmail and the possible defence of intoxication
    02) I discussed Fraud by false representation, Basic Criminal damage, Aggravated criminal damage and then Burglary under section 9 (1)(b)..

    Anyone else get that for question 2?

    To get an A* you must get at least 320UMS and average 90% in Unit 3 and Unit 4.

    I did scenario 2, looking back I probably should have done the first one. But glad morals came up!

    Yeah did exactly the same but I also mentioned Burglary s91b as well as 91a purely so I could just cover both sections

    Oh good I only noticed half way through my theft answer so just chucked it in there. Yeah though it was quite nice was so rushed for time though so I hope I've done enough ... I did Judicial Creativity under Section C and I didn't quite finish that either even though I did it first but was trying to stick to my time limits so I could cover everything

    Hi guys,

    Can someone please help me out here, I'm really, really worried I thought I had done really well until I read this thread as I have missed out burglary in scenario 2 - it never even occurred to me, I suppose that's what sleep deprivation does to you Apart from missing out burglary for the first question of scenario 2 I felt like I wrote about theft, robbery and duress really well, but theft and robbery would be 'one potential content' and duress would be another, so I have totally missed out 1/3 potential content (burglary)

    I've just had a look at a generic mark scheme from AQA and it says two content out of 3 answered at the highest level can only gain a max of 13/25 marks?? http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...W-MS-JUN12.PDF I thought it would have been more like 16 as ech would be worth 8? Can someone clarify if I have bombed this question please and put me out of my misery.

    Thanks

    if you do both parts of burglary but it wasn't needed and you did everything can u still get full marks or will they mark you down for putting in an offence which wasn't needed?

    My teacher has always said they never do negative marking as long as you've argued your point well.

    i did exactly the same thing, I wouldn't of had time to do it anyway, you can get more than 13 though, if duress and robbery/ theft are clear, that will be 19 marks I think

    Thanks so much for the reply - I'm grateful just for that. I wish this exam had been yesterday so I could have asked my law teacher about it the next day! Damn the weekend :P It's just the mark scheme I linked to for 3 potential content was capped at 13 for only including two, and robbery and theft have always been in the same PC in previous mark schemes. It would seem pretty harsh to only give 13 for a very thorough answer that only covers 2/3 :confused: Duress takes so long to work through methodically I don't how how the rest of you guys had time to include burglary let alone notice it There again I did spend a full hour on the essay.

    I said that Pam would be successful in her claim and that Jane wouldn't as she didn't fulfill the criteria needed for a secondary victim and mentioned some case examples to back it. How about you?
    I think both would not succeed in the claim, because Pam did not have the necessary ties of love and affection as she was a "friend of the family" so she would of probably only have been a bystander

    Noo you still look at the 3 pc, as the scenario questions are 3 pc, I doesn't matter if you didn't identify 3 offences, you still use them boundaries, the 2 pc boundaries are just for concepts!

    Not an awful paper really

    I did Scenario 2

    Question 3:
    Theft, Robbery, Burglary (Guilty of Theft/Robbery and under both S.9 (1) and S.9 (1) (b))
    Defence of Duress - fails because it is self-induced

    Question 4:
    Criminal Damage, Fraud by False Representation and Fraud by Obtaining Services dishonestly.
    I said Criminal Damage was debatable, although highly likely to fail, but he was guilty of both Fraud offences.

    As for concepts, I was so wishing Justice would come up. Damn AQA - too much to hope for it being in this one as well.
    But I think I managed to pull off a reasonable Fault essay.
