    Rust Cohle's A2 Law Database

    https://goo.gl/ggfhWR

    Pointers and predictions

    Unit 3 Criminal Law:
    -General defences or NFOs will be the evaluation question. Reason: Murder appeared last year. AQA has never repeated throughout this specification (10 papers)

    Unit 4 Property Offences:
    -One scenario will be intoxication and the other will be duress. Reason: every paper thus far follows this trend.

    Unit 4 Concepts:
    -Morality (virtually certain)
    -BCI (reasonably foreseeable)
    -Creativity (probable)
    -Justice (less likely)
    -Fault (less likely than less likely)
    Reason: Least popular topic BCI never repeats; whichever one of the big four (Morality, Creativity, Justice, Fault) that did not appear one year, does appear the next; one of the big two (Morality and Creativity) generally appears.

    LAW03 & LAW04

    I made this thread as mainly because I'm looking for succinct A grade unit 3 evaluation answers (under 600 words).

    Model answers

    Willing to upload my A2 law essay database (I have a plethora of LAW03/04 essays available which I'll post provided there's enough demand and we can get a community going where people share their papers too and not just leech. Only then will I upload.)

    Note: If anybody is interested in my own crafted concept essays then PM. (Morality [A* 34/35 1000 words ] and Creativity [A* 35/35 1400 words])

    I agree with your law prediction for unit 3. I personally believe it will be the non fatal offences, I may take the risk and just revise the NFO essay and GD just incase.

    Concepts: I think morality and BCI are 99% likely to come up. Justice comes up nearly every year so I think that will be up also.

    Thanks for setting this thread up.

    Hi! Thanks for starting this thread
    I'm retaking Unit 2 - (got a B last year) hoping to boost my grade by getting an A in that paper. I've been busy focusing on Unit 2 so haven't even started revising Law Unit 3 or 4...

    I also think I might just revise the non fatals and general defences evaluation for Unit 3, I don't think I have enough time to revise everything

    I'm doing tort for Unit 4 btw

    For unit 3 reforms - couldnt it be either NFOs or general defences as they never seem to repeat so takeaway murder we are left with those two.

    For unit 3, do you think it would be too risky to only revise non fatals and murder (for first 2 questions)? You always seem to get a question with non fatals, but some scenarios only ask about murder or involuntary manslaughter

    Looking at most questions you get non fatals+ murder or manslaughter... There are a few where they have been mixed...

    Thank you and fair enough XD would you be able to help me with Unit 4. I dont quite understand how to structure an answer on burgularly when it involves criminal damager and theft, by that i mean should i talk about those two first and then bring the charge from theft and CD up to burgularly?

    Do you know what offences are likely to come up for Unit 4? I'm assuming they won't put intoxication with blackmail and fraud and probably not making off, they probably also won't put duress for blackmail and fraud and probably not making off, so does that mean it's more likely that Theft / Burglary / Robbery / Criminal damage will come up, which one(s) do you think is most likely?
