    Take each offence at a time in the order in which they appear in the scenario.

    For each offence, first discuss the actus reus and any relevant cases, then apply to the scenario, and then do the same for mens rea elements and apply. Then do the same for any other offences, and if any defence applies, discuss this last and write a brief conclusion.

    There are 3 potential content for property questions, which, if you discuss well, can get you an A even if more than three offences could be applied for each question - just choose the ones you feel most confident in if this happens!

    E.g. if a property question has elements of theft, making off without payment, fraud by false representation and blackmail, you only really need to discuss three of these to get you enough marks for an A grade.

    For concepts of law it is a bit different where you need to structure it around the way the question is worded, and they often can be split up into two parts.

    E.g. Law and Morals specimen paper question: "Consider the relationship between law and morals and, using a range of examples, discuss why the debate concerning ‘law and morality’ continues to be important in the 21st century."

    This question can be split up into 1) the relationship between law and morals and 2) Examples of how debates e.g. the Hart/Devlin debate apply to cases in the 21st century, and other previous cases.

    I hope this helps!
