Hi

I have just taken my gdl exams. I’m unsure how well I did on my exams. I managed to spot the claims and site 4-5 case authorities per question and addressed the issues precisely. Is that good enough to pass? Is it unrealistic to expect a commendation?

I’m not a lazy person generally. But I didn’t study hard for these exams as I had a one year old to take care of, along with some other family problems.

I’ll be grateful if someone turns up and tells me what kind of results I should be expecting. From what I have gathered is that a number of people fail and not many people manage to get a commendation. Is that so?

Thanks in advance

It's not uncommon to receive a commendation. Roughly, two-thirds of students usually achieve either a commendation or distinction. Naturally, like any course, a small number do fail.

Unfortunately, it's impossible to predict your individual results. There's no way anyone could say. But if your observations are correct, that should be more than enough to pass.

Ok I’ll wait for them to come up and advise then. I’m a distance learning student so I have not been able to discuss this with any other GDL student and I’m unsure how many people actually fail the exam. When I appeared for my exams, the majority were resitting the exam either second or third time so I’m worried that I have failed also.

If my answers were very general and if I didn’t apply the law properly, do you think I can pass still?

It's really hard for me to say. The threshold for passing isn't as high as people fear. You won't fail because you merely overlook an issue or two, or you misapply the law in relation to an issue.

That being said, a certain knowledge of the law is required to be displayed to be able to pass. I'm not sure what you mean by very general answers. Problem Questions, for instance, are specifically drafted to examine specific issues. You spot the issues, state and apply the case law and/or legislation to each issue and conclude a likely outcome. If you don't follow this method, you are unlikely to score too highly. Forgetting a few case names is not the end of the world, as long as your answer makes it clear by reference to the facts what case you are referring to.
