    Hello!

    I'm currently in Year 12 with both my AS Level Law (OCR) exams in May. I'd love to help! Well, the English Legal System topic is very long, and rather difficult to remember and get your head round.

    Well, there are more or less 12 topics in this module. There are 7 questions in the exam. You answer 4. Thus, revising 6 or 7 topics is the best thing to do. And the topics I'd suggest revising would be:

    ADR, Police Powers, The Legal Profession, The Judiciary, Bail, Sentencing and one other of your choice.

    What you should do, is look over the mark scheme, and revise the answers to all the questions of those above topics. This may seem like a lot of information to remember, and I agree it is, but you still have around one month, try and memorize one chapter per day, and then keep going over those chapters till you get it, and it comes natural.

    All you have to do is put the work in! Literally, that's all it is. And don't be nervous, whatever happens, happens.

    Good luck, all the best!

    I did this in January last year and got an A and it's so easy compared to the second year with the special study In tort of criminal. But in terms of doing well on it, I used to get an a4 piece of paper and right the topic on the top and then write the points which will get me the marks. Iv forgot how many marks it is for each question but lets say it's 12 marks and it's about barristers I would right key points like called to the bar, inns of court blah blah so you when the marker sees it he/she is like yes, tick tick tick! It worked for me!!

    Oh sorry!! Well this paper we are talking about is very basic although it was hard at the time. It's all memory based! So generic things apply in many areas.
    Solicitors/Barristers- Cost/Competition/Gendermix/Background
    Judges- Age/Gendermix/Background

    What I would say is you can afford to leave one or two topics out of your revision and just concentrate on the others and nail then because you can choose the question you answer can't you!

    Basically, (b) questions are the questions that will test your understanding. (a) tests your memory really, but they try and catch you out with (b). With (b), look in the mark scheme, and learn the answers to the questions.
