    The defence was consent. I said it would fail in relation to it being a fight as you cant consent to fighting and it wasnt a proper boxing match. Others say it is consent but with horseplay. I think the scenario was beyond horseplay ... swelling .. knife being pulled ... thats an all out blatent fight to me.

    So my opinion .. consent but fails on grounds of fighting.

    i did question 1, ive probably ballsed it up.

    i put ABH, then S.20 for the stabbing cus its a wound then i talked about transferred malice

    then i talked about the possibility of consent in horseplay talking about richarson and irwin...probabl not right

    then i put a sentence about the dude who stabbed not being able to use self defence because it was excessive force


    murder question was pretty easy, i was umming and ahhing between express and implied malice but i chose implied in the end because pushing someone off a rail doesnt neccesairly mean intention to kill does it? agh i'm so confuseddd

    then i forgot to write about foresight of consequences to i had to go back and do it in the last 5 minutes haha

    as for evaluation, i screwed up.

    I hear what your saying, but if your on a high floor like they were .. and you deliberately push someone off the edge .. i would say personally that you want them dead. There is like a 90% it would kill em to be honest ...

    I put something sbout the outcome being a virtual certainty on that or something no wait i talked about both implied and express lol EDIT: sorry ignore me lol

    I am SO happy the C question wasn't on general defences though I knew my criticisms of murder/vol manslaughter practically word for word

    Hey.

    I done s39 battery whihc led to s.47 ABH. Defence was Consent, Case R v Brown and R v Jones, Horseplay.
    Then s.20 for GBH+transfered malice

    For B part, murder + provocation + DR, tho i run out of time for DR so had to scrible it :d

    Does anyone know the grade baundaries??

    What other defence did you do?

    I could only think of consent.
    I did a small paragraph saying the guy who brandished the knife might try to argue self defence but the violence was not proportionate and the fact that it was an act of revenge would mean the defence would fail even if he did try to argue it. I know it doesn't really count but I thought it may be a possibility... Though I doubt it's one that examiners are looking for candidates to have written..

    Yeah I did this. The use of a knife could indicate that he intended serious harm and use of weapon blah blah but I stuck a s20 paragraph in at the end quite briefly..

    Part b and c were gd dunno about part a bit confusing I put s47 and considered why its not s20 and for the other part of a I considered s18 but he didn't have intention to cause gbh it was more recklessness cause he had a blindfold on thats also why he missed and hit that girl in the crowd.
    blindfold???? Did you do question one?
