    So, is anyone else doing this exam?
    Which topics is everybody revising and how's revision going?

    I'm finding that there's A LOT to learn, even though I'm not revising Funding, or pre-trial procedure in criminal cases, criminal appeals and criminal cases. I'm hoping that 8/12 sections will be enough but it'll just be my luck that they'll come up!

    I resat this in January and got an E! Doing this again now in 2 days and so nervous! I've made all my notes out again, but it doesn't seem to stick in my head. I'm about to start typing all the notes up to review it all again. Is it possible to memorise this all in 2 days? Ive been revising this for ages but keep forgetting the stuff.

    ELS has literally no technique, sources of law had abit of technique from what I gathered. ELS is basically regurgitate knowledge onto the paper

    Exactly the same situation for me, haven't even looked at my law book yet, i'd struggle to revise for it because it's just all essays.

    I think Magistrates are going to come up, because I looked at some past papers and they haven't come up for ages but that's just what I think! Police powers seem to come up all the time, as does sentencing (which I dislike!)...

    What's everyone revising for civil courts? Track system/appeals/disadvantages?

    Exam's tomorrow guys (:O) and I have statistics in the morning and French on Friday, panicking slightly!
