    Does anyone know a website to look at model answers? I find them really useful but can't seem to find any.
    No I have been wondering the same! Please let me know if you find any!

    I really think that a question on general defences will come up so I need to perfect it and I have no idea how to construct it

    HOw do you answer murder questions and involuntary manslaughter questions?

    I know all the knowledge and cases but I don't know how much to include and what needs to be included (I think I'm trying to include too much), I'm not achieving good marks as a result, and help would be hugely needed and appreciated so much!

    One tip. Only include whats RELEVANT to the scenario. Don't go off on a tangent about the killing of a foetus when the scenario in question doesn't include anything to do with a foetus. Same goes for causation; don't start explaining the rules on intervening acts UNLESS it invites you to do so in the scenario. There's plenty of scope to discuss the relevent law with what they prescribe in the scenario

    Thanks! That was my problem I think I talked about literally everything that wasnt relevant to the question! Anythings that you have to definitely include?

    How likely do people think it is that both the question Bs will be involuntary manslaughter? I'm guessing unlikely as it's only been done once but is it worth only revising murder?

    For that reason I would revise both.

    For the fatal offences do you talk about general defences if they are relevant?

    If they are relevant, you should include it as they could be part of one potential content of the question. The non fatals will probably include consent or maybe intoxication.

    I hate it when you think you've written everything that you need and then when your nearly finished you re read the scenario and then you find a little thing that you will have to talk about like .. 'Jack lost his footing .. ' but I love the scenario questions though I think I'm going to do the essay question first

    Definitely do the essay question first, then you can get it out the way and since you could literally prepare a model essay you're sure to score higher in the essay question

    The scenario's can be very farfetched that I have to read them over 2/3 times as I usually get one person muddled with the other

    I've never done a involuntary manslaughter question and would like to know how to structure it!?

    I was thinking you first talk about murder then say the D had no malice aforethought then talk about involuntary manslaughter which ever is more relevant is this correct?

    Also do you use general defences in involuntary and murder questions? If so is it a brief sentence on which ones can be used?

    Help needed!

    Thanks in advance!
