I'm looking for anyone who did AQA A level law and good a good grade in it. Specifically I could use help with exam technique because I know the content but i struggle with getting it all down in the time limit and identifying the relevant things in the scenario.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

I've done the AS but can only help you if you do the same topics as me in unit 1 and 2.
I am studying unit 3 now but again I can only help if your topics are the same as mine.

I find it easy to memorize the content, I just can't get it all down in the amount of time we have for the exam

Hmm, maybe you're going into too much detail.
For unit 1, just get the amount needed down to reach sound in the mark scheme and if you have memorised it properly it won't take long to write this out. Literally, I made model answers for every possible q and memorised them and didn't find timing hard in this exam. I had time to proof-read my answers.

Also, you can use brackets to save time from writing long words out twice e.g. one type of delegated legislation (DL) is... A second type of DL is...

For unit 2, timing is a little harder because you have to read the scenario. For some parts you only have to apply certain things if it is relevant. For example, a battery can be formed by an omission or it can be indirect but you dont mention this unless it is an omission or indirect in the scenario.

For unit 3 and 4 you might need different approaches.
