    to apply the situation? its not as hard as you make it sound guys!

    for example, in a murder question when you're talking about the mens rea you would say malice aforethought express or implied then for example "i believe bob had implied malice aforethought as to the murder of millie because he only stabbed her once"

    if you think if of your questions in chunks...and then you can either apply at the end of the chunk, or within the chunk

    i hope this helps like.

    when you got time to answer a question to a scenario let me know
    it's not about it being hard, it's just knowing what to write about the section of the law and how much to write about that section.

    just don't go too overboard with it, like if causation and actus reus have been clearly established only write a setence about it that sort of thing. the scenarios hold the issues quite obviously, like one offences against the person I did couple of weeks ago, it said "alvin was a diabetic who had forgotten to take his insulin" so you automatically (lol) know that the defence is automatism. that kinda thing. I could send you one of my essays if you want? if that will help

    I've got the same exam too.

    Hmm. I've wrote out all my revision cards of cases I need to know and there are about 100 cases. :eek:

    Not looking forward to this exam.



    Oh, by the way.

    What has been getting me is what are the questions like?


    So we have these topics: Murder/voluntary manslaughter, Involuntary manslaughter, Non-fatal offences against the person, defences and evaluation.

    Can we get away with not learning murder/manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter? What I mean is: is there a choice of the question?

    So can I stop revising involuntary (which I hate) in depth?

    Yeah I'm taking the exam too

    No, you have to do all of those questions on the scenario you have chosen. The questions will be about the same but for different scenarios. However, you will get away with only studying for one "problems" you get a choice of which evaluation question to do. I am studying for two, just in case, - murder and non-fatal offences.

    Your wrong unless your doing the old specification.

    the new specification we have a choice between questions, one is always manslaughter and the other is always murder.

    for the evaluations, you dont get choices in the new specification, you have to revise all 4 evalutations because you only get one option and any of them can come up.

    So are you only going to revise one then? Murder or Involuntary manslaughter?


    Have to know non-fatal, that comes up on both, maybe.

    xyllix, u obvisly dnt know wat u talking bout.

    we get a paper.

    Q1 could be Non fatal, Manslaughter and Reform, the reform we MAY get a choice of Murder, Non fatal or defences. We may get 1 (non fatal most likely).

    Q2 will be Non fatal, MURDER and Reform. The reforms could be the same as above.

    The questions could obvisly be other way round.
