    I put s47 for it but didn't bother referencing the assault and battery parts, I think I may of lost marks for that? I put GBH for brain damage yes

    Nope pretty sure that's right as in savage and parmenter (an ABH case) slight bleeding occurred that's how I worked it out

    Yay. Finally someone who sees my point of view. A few of my friends put it as gbh because the bleeding threw them off and they automatically saw it as GBH. even though it clear states that he was only slightly injured

    I spent 5 minutes of my precious exam time exuberantly reading into the scenario and the wording in questions 03 and 04. From my external independent study before hand I found that S47 can occur through skin abrasions, i.e grazes and such things that do not break all layers of the skin. I remembered seeing that minor wounds don't have to amount to a S20/S18 either - like a paper cut or a pin prick, however from my own experience using an air rifle (and consequently being shot by one in the back of the leg accidentally), the bleeding caused by it, even worded as 'bled lightly' in the scenario, must have sensibly amounted to wounding for a S20/S18, obviously such a close range pellet shot would have broken all layers of the skin so that is what I wrote about. Obviously brain damage can amount to the 'serious harm' needed for GBH, so no questions there.

    In retrospect, I personally think AQA may have intended it to be S47, but also in retrospect I've looked at many legal definitions to see if the wording 'bled lightly' could have been anything other than S20/18, which it couldn't have been via how the real act intended it to be. So if AQA mark it for only S47 I would suggest contesting the validity of the mark scheme towards the specification and the law in real life. I think they might allow both S20/18 and S47, and give credit for both, however this wouldn't explain repeating the essay for question 04 on the brain damage, so I'm lost on the thinking and wording behind the exam paper for those two questions. Everything else was flawless.

    Just to add, neither of the questions required students to apply causation as AQA would have asked if Ahmed had caused any injury to Julian, it stated in the question that Ahmed had already caused both the injury in the shooting and the brain damage and it just wanted you to discuss their criminal liability.

    I said it was s.18 for then first one as Ahmed intended to be reckless and cause GBH and then said then brain damage was s.49 because there was no wound. Am I completely wrong?!?!

    I put the first as assault/battery amounting to ABH
    And then the second as GBH
    My law teacher thinks this is likely to be the right way
    Hope it all went ok for everyone!

    I don't mind learning about unit 3 as it's more in depth version of criminal from unit 2 haha! But I haven't looked at the material in ages so I need to try and write model answers without the application to make sure I pick up all available non app marks lol. I think if you do 3 you should be okay but if you have more time I guess you could go over more lol. Same I need a B minimum overall want an A really though. I needed 43 marks from 3 papers to get it though so I need to smash unit 3

    Then even after I considered it being assault occasioning ABH, I saw the next question (brain damage) and just knew it must be that as they couldn't ask GBH twice

    true true... and same haha, i plan to start revising thoroughly from today. but yeah i think we should definitely make sure we bank the non-application questions marks so model answers are best to revise from for these type of questions haha. don't worry, i'm sure youll get a B undoubtedly, just keep revising and take regular breaks, plus unit 3 is quite easy anyway

    ive got a business exam tommorow so for me i will start revising properly from tommorow, but in that time i will have to revise for both law and business as i have another business exam on the 10th lol. it is it just requires practice i guess, last year i didnt do that well on it because i was focusing on unit 4 too much but i ended up with a b so i am not retaking that haha
