    Hey guys, not sure if there is one of these yet..? If you are taking the Criminal Law paper this summer on the OCR Specification, make sure you leave a reply to get involved. We can use this thread to help each other with anything we don't understand, and to leave our opinion on what topics you think are likely to come up (I Know it is a while away yet but may aswell make one now)

    Strict liability is actually in the teacher guide on the OCR website http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/74903-u...iminal-law.pdf although your essay won't need to be this good! xD

    I would recommend using the Gammon principles as the structure of your essay. Introduce each one with some cases and examples and comments. SL is actually one of the easier ones because there are lots and lots of AO2 points to make about the unfairness!

    Insanity is definitely a difficult one because there is a huge amount of information on it and it gets pretty complicated. I would say focus on a few key areas in detail and create an essay plan (and make sure you have 10+ cases so you can choose the relevant ones in the exam).

    As with all the topics, just keep practicing the past essay questions and mark them with the mark scheme. That's the most effective way to revise and will allow you to learn the essay structures for the real exam!

    Hope that helped. Let me know if there is anything more specific you want to know.

    Our teacher said it was okay to completely forget about one topic if we learnt all the others, is this true? Was there an instance last year where your Didnt revise one topic?? Bcus i would preferably be obliged to leave out strict liability as i hate it! Haha

    Yes just one is fine, I didn't learn voluntary manslaughter as it's uncommon but we learnt enough to answer a section C question on it

    Everyone here is saying the same thing but maybe you should ask your teacher to go over it again. It was the question I wanted most xD there are a lot of AO2 points to make!

    Our teacher recommended that we do it that way but I found it easier to do ABC :P otherwise I spend too long on C when I can actually do it quite fast do whichever is right for you! I did the special study ACB though :P
