    How did the ELS exam go? and what topics did you all answer questions on?
    unfortunately i wrote 'suspect' throughout the whole bail essay instead of 'defendent' - i think i got all of the points in there though, how many marks is this likely to lose me?

    I did solicitors, sentencing, bail and police powers and I doubt you will lose any marks could be maybe 1 or 2 but as long as you got the main facts in

    Ahh thats good how was the police powers question? I did the same as you but mags/juries instead of police powers :P also on the bail part B, would the woman be likely to get a life sentence? Because it was murder, but the circumstances are different :/

    Haha, describe the role of magistrates and juries in criminal cases or something along those lines.. although i was focussing so much on remembering the more complex things that i forgot the simple stuff like magistrates sentence offenders etc haha :P dont think they have mixed mags/juries before aswell, first time and it threw me a bit haha

    I only read the question breifly but i think it was rights of the police at the police station so that would be time limits/rights to a solicitor etc and also searches so intimate samples/strip search etc

    Thanks so does that mean i wont be marked down.. Its just in my revision notes it says the 'defendent' can be denied bail if there are reasonable grounds for believing.. Blah blah .. So if i wrote suspect instead, is that okay?

    Yeah that should be fine. lemme just check... my bail notes from last year say both defendant and suspect. They're technically a suspect until they are convicted/acquitted anyway so don't worry

    Hmm possibly, i cant remember :s thats things like rights to a heated, lit, ventilated room etc right? im sure if you mentioned right to have someone informed and right to a solicitor then you will get most of the marks anyway

    Should me more than half if you went into detail, usually it means you can still get the top of level 3 which is 14 i believe what were the points you made in a solicitors part B... Im just wondeing whether i did that right now :P
    Also i think appropriate adult doesnt matter because thats interviews
