Couldn't find a thread for it so I thought I'd make one.

Anyone else doing these exams? How's your revision coming along?

So I chose to retake just the Unit 2 paper to get a higher grade, I've currently been focusing on Unit 3 (A2) which is closely linked with Unit 2 but from now till the 19th my focus will move to unit 2, I actually have decent notes on Tort of Negligence / Causation if anyone would like to use them.

I have predictions for Parliamentary Law Making, Delegated Legislation and Criminal Courts and Lay People if these are of any interest to you?
I'm doing criminal courts and lay people so any ideas you have on them would be much appreciated

Criminal Courts and Lay People (Disclaimer, this are a harder topic to predict):
Question 1 - So last year the question focused on trial/appeal courts and types of cases dealt with by the courts. So this year for the first question on this topic it could be one focused on Jury/Magistrates qualifications, training and selection.

Question 2 - Last year the second question of this topic focused on the qualification and training of lay magistrates. A question on the role of the jury or Magistrates' duties is a prediction for this year. In the 2013 paper the qualification and selection of jurors also came up as the second question on this topic as well meaning there is a chance that it could also be the question for this year.

Question 3 - Always focuses on the advantages and disadvantages of lay persons. Last year they asked about the disadvantages of lay persons. AQA can give you a choice between jurors or magistrates and usually ask you to specifically talk about either advantages of disadvantages. I predict that the question for this year could be an advantages of lay persons question which either gives us a choice of discussing those of jurors or magistrates or forces us to reference to both magistrates and jurors.
Thanks a lot ill make sure i have those topics down to a tee, looking through past papers i would be surprised if the role of lay persons didn't come up, thanks a lot for your predictions

What do you mean by two brief? Not enough cases/illustrations to back up your points?

I doubt there will be a question of the court strcuture this year, as the exam board are aware that the track limits and claims for courts are changing, so now High Courts may deal with claims over 100k I think and anything less would go to the County Court.

Last year they did Parliamentary Controls so I doubt it will come up as they like to alternate each year.
The only two I can think of anyway is the Human Rights Act 1998 (for Positive resolution procedure) and the Statutory Instrument Act 1946 which provides a defence to someone in breach of a Statutory Instrument if it has not been issued.

That's great, thank you! I though that it would probably be judicial controls but better safe than sorry
