Just a heads up, law unit 2 is tricky... time wise but don't write about stuff that does not need to be. The criminal section should only take 40 minutes, it requires far less detail!

Good luck!

Really? I feel like unit 2 is easier. I wish I had started learning the content early though.

For unit 2, Criminal liability, am i mistaken to see a pattern where the following applies:

Q1+2 are a mixture of the following questions: strict liability, causation, mens rea explaination, actus reus explaination, omissions and contemporaneity rule

Q3+4 are a mixture of nonfatal application questions and the occasional legal application (not referencing the scenario only case knowledge)

Q5 are procedure and aims of sentencing questions.

and if this is the case are there others i have missed out?

im doing unit 2 law tomorrow aswell & i was wondering with the actus reus question would they only ask about the omissions or would they ask a question on you explaining the actus reus? because ive got a prepared answers for actus reus but it only has a small explanation on what the actus reus is then 3 examples of 3 of the omissions

If the question is not on omissions include state of affair crimes and Hills v Baxter for involuntary acts. Then include the omission cases, Pitwood, Gibbins v Proctor e.g.

thank you! and also for causation i'm struggling to explain legal causation without it being really long what are the main points to include. I've prepared and learnt half of my answer here is what i have so far:

Causation is the link between the defendant’s act and the criminal consequence. To prove causation, the prosecution must show that the defendants conduct was the factual & legal cause of that consequence & that there was no intervening act which broke the chain of causation.

To prove causation, we must establish that the defendant is the factual cause of the consequence. To prove factual causation, the ‘but for’ test is used which was established in the case of R v White. This states that but for the defendant’s actions would the prohibited consequence have occurred? If no then the defendant is not liable, if yes then the defendant is liable. The but for test is also used in the case of Pagett

Once factual causation has been established, the prosecution must prove legal causation. Establishing factual causation does not mean that there will be legal causation.

Causation is fairly straightforward, this is full mark template:

Explain there are two tests to see IF defendant has to cause the end harm to the victim

Factual causation
But for test
Explain white and the Arsenic is his mums tea

Legal causation
operating and substantial factor
Smith in the army barracks

Apply them both the the scenario is needed

Then explain the link between the act and consequence is the chain of causation

Then Think skull rule, Blaue
Unforeseen actions, Padgett
Palpably wrong medical care, Jordan
Victims of actions 'so daft' Williams

if it's a theory question and you have time then it may enhance your answer, if it's an app question then just mention it if it applies to the scenario

There is no need for negligence predictions as every year all the topics come up, just in different forms. Duty of care test, breach of duty, rules on causation, remoteness, (maybe res ipsa), the track system and damages will come up.
