    I have only revised for Murder, Voluntary maslaughter, Intoxication, Duress, Insanity/Automatism, Theft, Robbery & Burglary and OAPA.
    Do you think I will be able to get away with only knowing these topics or are there any topics which you think I should learn?

    Section 2:

    I assume you mean basic and specific intent, basic intent is where D either intended the crime but also subjective recklessness is sufficient for the MR, i.e. GBH s20, criminal damage, etc.

    Specific intent on the other hand is where only intention will suffice, recklessness will not, i.e. murder, GBH s18. However it is important to note that specific intent could also be oblique intent as per Woollin (i.e. consequence of death/serious injury was virtually certain).

    The only areas I don't know particularly well are voluntary manslaughter and duress.. what do you think the chances are of both those areas coming up in the legal reasoning? is that likely to happen??

    If it does then I think I will be screwed for section 3 :/
