It's literally impossible to find any one else who's done the law GCSE exam for AQA on 16th of May 2016 and I just wanted to ask about a few questions

I did it if you wanted to ask any questions about it, I did the question 8 of Section B that began with Legislation not the lay people in the law for Question 9 though.

I did it too - although I did Question 9, not 8! And yes, both 8 and 9 were worth 45 marks (although you obviously only did one question).

I know I was a bit vague on a couple of the questions in section 1 - i.e civil legal representation - but I managed to answer them all so hopefully it's not too bad.

I did GCSE Law Unit 1 on the 16th - doing Unit 2 tomorrow too. I did Lay People in the Law, and all was ok except from the question on magistrates' appointment. I was confused between selection and appointment.

I really struggled on the disadvantages and advantages of the process! Definitely feel that was my worst in the section - although thankfully it was only three marks I think.

Also I didn't know how much to describe re the appointment process. I went right up to them having a mentor/training etc, so hopefully I covered it all? I didn't think it was worded particularly clearly though.

I did unit two yesterday, answered question 1 & 2, I was able to answer all the questions and remember plenty of case law and acts to support, something I was a bit worried about recalling, although I was annoyed they put down the OLA 1957, I wanted to show the buggers id learnt it! Still got to use the 1984 act with the two little scallies who broke into the park though! 👍

I totally get what u mean...when they sit at home watching movies + going out with friends when u're stuck at a desk? But it'll all pay off if you revised! I found it hard to screen out the rustling of the other students, but the paper was interesting right? I found it overall good, although looking back, one of the defences I put was mis-applied because of the time pressure. Nvm; did my best and can't do any more!

I think they were trying to catch us out with the 11-year-old child and 19-year-old adult thing. It didn't work tho ;D And yeah, the stem material is so flippin' annoying! We're trying to show what we know and they just copy the textbook down for us? I'd much prefer to have no stem and have the grade boundaries lowered a tiny bit!

Cases are super HARD to remember; and the 8-markers were way too high for the stuff they were asking for, dw. And you know the scenario for Criminal?- Didn't you think it was way fuller in info than the past papers?
