    Bump!

    This exam is freaking me out... I have a massive issue with the time limits on the scenario questions. On non-fatal offence and murder scenarios I just can't finish in time.

    What on earth am I doing wrong?

    It's not like i'm a bloody idiot either, I got 4 A's at AS in History, English Lit, Politics and Law 0.o

    I have my biology exam on the same day as law 03! For some tips, I've been told that in A2 you don't need to add case facts just make sure you outline the principles of all the cases especially the non fatal offences. And make sure for the
    Murder questions you really apply the mens rea, its all about application (maybe you have already been told this)

    It might just be that my teachers rubbish but personally i've never done anything so dull in my life.
    Where in criminal law you have interesting (athought occasionally morbid) cases on which you can have a class discussion and suggest law reforms and such the contract law cases are just 'this happened, they sued, end'.

    I hate contract if im honest which might be why im dreading the exam so much.

    Tell me about it! Which exam do you have to do first? I have do law so my hand is going to be dead for the biology paper! I'm okay with law but sometimes I struggle with trying to work out if it's a murder or manslaughter from the scenarios.

    i absolutely love the criminal stuff, which actually helps me remember most of cases
    i think everyone should do contract first cos atleast that way if people dont get the grade they want they have the option to re-sit, oh well i suppose i'll just have to work extra hard & try to make it interesting good luck for ur exam!

    i dont actually know which one im doing first, is it our own choice? cos if it is i'd probably wanna do law and get it over with, i cant do it if ive done one exam before, my hand is gonna be so tired!!
    plus im gonna be isolated in some room instead of the actually exam hall :'(
    yh same here, which is why im gonna do the question which actually tells you what to write
    what did u get for AS for law/bio if you dont mind me asking??

    Haha yeah I thought of doing that cause in old papers they usually put like" discuss x's liability for the murder of y" but in the new papers they don't give hints they just say for the incident with y, if you get me :s
    And no not at all, got B's in both (resitting to pull them up to a's hopefully) you?

    I loved criminal last year but then i also love negligence last year too so i found it a lot easier to remember it all.
    I'm less likely to remember the stuff i dont like.
    However The uni i want to go to have said they'll accept with A*BC instead of their offered ABB so im going to really buckle down regardless of the fact that contract makes me want to kill myself...and everyone else :P
