    But I found it to be a bit too in-depth. What I did was do plenty of exam questions, even if you do extra and ask your teacher to mark them, and then I'd make revision notes from them. I did the same for Sources of Law.

    Thats what we use too and I also think it is too in-depth. But I just simplify it in my own words and make my own notes. I will definitely practice writing more essay questions and ask my teacher to mark them 😊 Also i wanted to ask what topic do you think I should choose to answer in the exam for the English Legal System paper? I was considering Police powers, magistrates and ADR, but I'm still not sure and since you have done your AS you may have a better idea. Also around what month did you finish covering the whole AS content? I still feel like I am a bit behind.

    Well if I was resitting AS I probably wouldn't focus on bail and detention because they weren't supposed to come on last year but they did. Stop and search was supposed to come on last year but didn't so I'd definitely revise that. I'd look at aims of sentencing because they're on the exam regularly. And I think we finished learning English legal system around march. But including sources of law, I think it was about 3 weeks before the exam.
