    Hi guys, so for most of us college has started again and those reading this will probably be studying A2 law. The 2016 thread was made in may this year, so i thought I'd make it much sooner .

    As a little introduction to those who will be posting on the thread,

    How do did you do at AS Law?
    How are you finding Unit 3 or Unit 4 so far?
    Have you got any questions and do you need any help?

    Also if you have any exam material or sample essays, just like i saw on last years i intend to make a database with all the model answers over the next few weeks, so just pm me or post on this thread.

    Good luck with A2 Law everyone

    So at AS i got in,

    Law01 - 83 UMS.
    Law02 - 84 UMS.
    So overall i got 167 UMS, which is a A.

    How are you finding Unit 3 or Unit 4 so far?

    I'm finding unit 3 okay so far. All we've been taught is involuntary manslaughter and one or two of the defences. Essay timings are a lot different to last year, but I think i can get my head around it soon. We've also been taught a little bit of unit 4, a topic called judicial precedence.

    I go back on Tuesday 6th but we started A2 Law before we left for summer. We've started murder already which is actually okay atm.

    AS- B Law01:81
    Law02:77 (getting a remark)
    Total:158

    Was really hoping for an A* at A2 but seeing as the papers were marked so harshly I'm not counting my chickens

    Don't lose confidence in an A* just yet, i was feeling the exact same a few days ago, but at A2 all the law just seems to click at lot easier, so all your answers will probably be of higher quality this year

    I'm hoping so, and I'm defo going to revise more this year because I want to do Oxford biology so I need as many A*'s as possible and until I got my AS (I was so surprised that it wasn't an A) I thought it would be an easy A* but I'm not so sure now

    I'm planning to do law at cambirdge and i was banking on an A* prediction, but unless my remark goes up my at least 9 UMS my teacher refuses to give me that prediction. I opened my results and i looked at unit 1 and i was so shocked because I'd had 85 + marks on every paper and in this one i got 73. I think it should be easy to get an A* in unit 3, but i feel unit 4 might be quite hard to get one in .

    Not even looked at Law04 yet, from what Ive done Law03 seems okay and a possible A* but idk, I'll need to wait until I've done it all to see where I think I'll stand with it all.

    Good luck with Cambridge Law!! We need all the luck were going to get with Oxbridge

    How do did you do at AS Law?
    B. Remarking or resitting unit 1 - our teacher made an official complaint to our exam officer about our entire class' grades. Got papers back and he thinks marked wrong

    How are you finding Unit 3 or Unit 4 so far?
    Easier than unit 1 and 2 by far. I did murder/manslaughter etc. at GCSE so it's a walk in the park for me right now.

    Have you got any questions and do you need any help?
    I need help with economi- haha nevermind we'll just ignore this section.

    I somehow got an A despite messing up majorly in the exams (in LAW02, I completely missed out the chain of causation for the Q where the guy ended up with brain damage)
    LAW01 - 80
    LAW02 - 83
    I really can't mess up in A2 but I'm so glad I can bank those marks

    How are you finding Unit 3 or Unit 4 so far?
    They're... okay, I'm doing theft in LAW04 and murder (and the defences) in LAW03 (and we've already done a model answer for one of the essays for LAW04 but I was pretty lucky since our teacher chose to do interpretation as one of them which we covered in LAW01). Theft is soo boring and I barely understand it and we haven't even done MR yet

    I feel so late to the party hahahaha, I was actually just looking for a thread of law applicants for university

    I got A's in both units (can't remember UMS)

    How are you finding Law 03/04?
    Just started it really, just finished murder and are currently doing involuntary
    manslaughter (personally feel like the pace were going at is too slow and plus got
    new teachers)

    Also thinking of doing Law at Oxford...
