Need Help in Contract Law and Tort LawWatch
I am sitting for Contract law and Tort Law CIE A-levels this winter.
Any advice on how I can score well?
Are there any topics I can skip?
Any advice and help will be most appreciated!
I think the biggest mistake people make and what my tutor always tells me is to treat contract as just one topic. Way too many people try to disect a whole years worth of notes into topics like Agreement, consideration, defences, remedies, terms, discharge and misrepresentation and defences. If you answer say a scenario question in the former way (treating it as a whole) then you can't go wrong. In contract i always followed this when answering scenario questions, obviously you may have to adjust this depending how the questions are set.
Is there offer and acceptance?
Is there sufficient consideration?
Was there a breach of terms of the contract (Express/Implied discussion) or was there a misrepresentation?
Are any remedies available?
Are there any defences (Promissory estoppel, duress, undue influence)
Other issues? (Void/Voidable contracts and Discharge of obligations).
I can't comment on tort law because i'm only doing it this year for my first time.
But on any topic in law. The best way to succeed is to find a structure to writing your responses. In scenarios state the relevant law, apply it to the facts, work your way through methodically, evaluate the evidence and conclude. In essay based responses become critical, by analysing the topic area and then evaluating it using your few and evidence.
