    Also intrigued as to what will most likely come up

    I know there's 8 questions, of which we answer only three. They are in the following format

    Q1) Q2) Q3) - pick 1. 50marks.
    Q4) Q5) Q6) - pick 1. 50marks.
    Q7) Q8) - pick 1. 20marks.

    Anyone got any idea as to what they'll ask though?

    My Teacher says Duress, but I don't think so personally because it's still in the legacy specification.

    The following is a quote from another thread and is about what came up in Jan:
    "Section A was to answer either a question on Appropriation (Theft), Recklessness and Intention and Intoxication (I did this one). Section B was the case scenerios and they were on Assault, can't remember the other one, and the last one was on Gross Negligence... which I did. Section C was the application questions and the first 3 questions were on Robbery and Theft and the other 3 on Strict Liability."

    I'm hoping that helps in some way.

    Oh and revision is going well Stringer987 ^^, If Attempts, Theft, Robbery, Burglary, Duress, Provocation, Intoxication, Insanity, Automatism come up then I'm fine and dandy xD Anything else then I'll cry. :'(

    My teacher says Duress is 99.999% certain to appear somewhere on the paper, since it's the first year it hasn't been on the synoptic paper for a while. She also seems to think non-fatals are unlikely, since we've done that to a much higher level of detail in the synoptic paper.

    Ahhh i really need some model answers on this!! i revised involuntary manslaughter today, so i thought id answer them questions in the ocr textbook to make sure i actually knew it, but i dont have a clueeee where to start or how to structure it or anything!
    i know the info just not what to put in the questions

    il probably sound stupid this close to the exam asking questions like this but we've never done them in class and my teacher doesn't actually know anything about law!

    It's safe to say im stressed

    I've been revising involuntary manslaughter today too, so the OCR book, if we have the same one there is two problem questions at the end of the section. Raul, Dr Smith and Margaret is one of them.

    I've uploaded my essay for this question for you to have a look at, I hope it's helpful!

    I've got this exam on the 17th (OCR) and then the special study on the 25th, which is on topics from offences against the person.... This that mean I don’t have to revise these topics for the criminal law paper? and only for the special study.

    I've got notes on everything but Offences against the person so was wondering if i could leave it till after the criminal law exam or do i need to pull a few all nighters to get the topic done for the 17th.

    Ok, My teacher has said:

    section a - maybe attempts, invol manslaughter and duress
    section b - always - causation or theft and burglary or oapa and self-defence -
    section c - dilemma boards can be anything!

    Hope this helps some people.
