    Okay, which is the easiest to learn within 3 hours?
    I'd say fault, but I've only studied it, law and justice, and judicial creativity (which you already have).

    You are taking a big risk What will you do if morality does not come up? Do you not have a university offer to meet?
    Don't mind me at all. I need to get 86% in this to achieve an A grade overall which i need for uni.

    After taking a look at everything we need to learn and know, it is clearly impossible to achieve this. In other words, I've kinda given up (especially due to personal problems i've been going through since d past 2 weeks).

    I'm just relying on Gods' support now

    You can still do it, last summer 80 was 62, and 90 was 69. So you'll need 66 (if boundaries are the same) which gives you a whole 19 marks to drop! Which is over 20% of the marks. Don't give up.

    Do you have a large supply of coffee at your house? If so, consume a vast amount and stay up for 3-4 hours to consolidate your existing knowledge. You could go to sleep at 4, wake up at 10, revise for another hour and then go into the exam. I know someone who did something similar and got 95%.

    Pray to God, yes, but use the strength He gives you to pick yourself up. You will be full of regrets and woe if you relinquish your university place!

    I wish I had the Providence that stalks you! I got 80 but nonetheless retook it as I need an A*. When you answer questions on Tort, do you constantly discuss the circumstances of the scenario whilst remotely applying legal knowledge?

    Arghhh I'm scared in case morality don't come up. It has to come up as its the only topic out of all 5 that's hasn't come up. If it does come up ill be so happy!!! Ill literally jump up and down. I really want an A* but I only need a D for an A so either way I would be happy!

    I only apply what is relevant to the scenario, and essentially use that as guide of what to say, and yes I'm always discussing the scenario. Avoid the irrelevant detail, the examiner doesn't care if you know about how the duty in OLA 1957 is affected by children if everyone involved is an adult, they do however care about specialist visitors if they are mentioned.. The scenarios are a test of your application of your knowledge, not your knowledge itself. Of course having the knowledge is important, as without it you can't apply it!

    Anyway I'm off to bed. Good luck to all.

    Sei il benvenuto! Just ensure you are not encumbered by fear or anxiety. The brain is immeasurably feeble when under immense pressure. For example, one girl I know was given a conditional offer to study economics at Cambridge. She studied for her exams more rigorously than I had ever known someone too; but she became almmost mad with anxiety before the exams and consequently came out with Bs instead of As/A*s

    Yeah, if I can get it. Good luck tomorrow dude, and don't worry too much about not knowing it all whilst revising tonight (if you do), just learn as much as you can. I'm sure you'll do great.

    She failed to meet her offer so had to take a gap year and reapply. I think she got into Cambridge the second time round.

    I hope law and morality comes up I am split as to whether to take the huge risk of going in with only strong knowledge in creativity and morality! I may learn the basics of fault just before the exam as I will only need a high B in LAW04 to get an A overall.

    I understand. I just have this strong feeling that morality will definitely be there but don't take my words for it lol. Fault is quite straight forward so that shouldn't be an issue for you even in the last minute. Im sure you won't be comfortable with that A grade though?

    I have a strange feeling that morality will come up too. If it does, then I will instantly commence celebrations upon leaving the exam haha.

    I would be satisfied with an A as I believe I may have got an A* in history due to me getting 100% in the coursework. The people on the LAW03 retake thread have made me worried about the exam I just took because apparently ABH was supposed to be mentioned instead of assault I subsequently read on the mark scheme that 'due to limited time, a candidate cannot be expected to mention every possible idea' - would this extend to missing out an idea or arguing another instead? I fear this will bug me for the summer.
