    I am re-sitting this exam and I was wondering if anybody has an incline as to what the topics in the exam will be? It would make my revision a lot easier as I will be able to target specific areas. Thankyouuu

    My teacher has a pretty good record with predicting topics, for EGL its:
    Stop and Search
    Barristers
    Sentencing
    Detention
    Bail

    Can only remember these from the top of my head.

    For anyone else interested, she has predicted the following for the Source of Law exam:
    -Delegated legislation with either Legislation (Likely), on its own or Law reform (unlikely).

    She successfully predicted January exam topics and the May/June ones last year.

    I suggest still going over other topics just in case, with these predictions, if you stick to revising the above topics, no reason why you can't achieve an A.

    Again, for anyone who wants to be pessimistic, I must state that these are only predictions and you take them into consideration however you see fit.

    Sorry, should have been more clear. Yep the aims of sentencing and the general purpose and effect of sentencing, which is basically which sentences satisfy which aims.

    I've also been told to steer clear of civil courts as generally its not a topic which people get good marks on. As ADR came up in January, it is unlikely to come up.

    Apparently stop and search along with sentencing are almost givens, if you give yourself a good basis to start off with those two, then you have some insurance for other two questions you answer. Just go over them regularly and refresh yourself when need be.

    Sentencing was a part B in January, it was " Describe the different custodial and community sentences for adults" and then deciding a sentence for a person and the aims of it

    Magistrates will most likely come up in May, I hope

    My teacher has guessed every year what topics will come up on this exam and each year he's got it right, for this exam he has guessed that:
    • Police powers - stop and search, detention
    • Bail - criminal appeals
    • Civil tracking system
    • Magistrates
    • Youth offenders


    Of course don't just revise these topics just incase they aren't the ones that come up on the exam, but these are the topics I will be mainly focusing my revision on.

    Police powers, penal system and bail is a pretty good bet, along with magistrates and the legal profession

    Magistrates didn't come up in January, Juries did - they asked explain question on their selection and discuss question on secrecy.

    I've focused my revision on: Bail, S&S, Detention, Crim Appeals, Bar/Solicitors, Young Offenders Sentencing and Magistrates. From a tally I made juries HAS come up twice in a row before, but I'm confident there will be S&S and YOs for defo. Good luck guys

    Took G152 SOL last year and the paper was what your teacher said and Judicial precedent. I think they'd mix it up a little more than that
