the actus reus is the act itself (the physical aspect):
ie he is a trespasser on any premises,

the mens rea is the intent / mental aspect
ie (b)he intends to commit a relevant sexual offence on the premises, and
(c)he knows that, or is reckless as to whether, he is a trespasser.

as for what constitutes trespass, and the requisite mental element, look it up in a book.

by the way, if it was not covered at all, and you are sure of this, then it will not come up. i don't remember doing this in criminal law.

I did it last year and it was an exam question for this year, but this query has been answered/responded to several times by other members.
