Okay so Im insanely confused about what content is required and how much I acc have to learn for the new aqa a level spec. I'm teaching myself and so far I thought you had to learn, study, know everything like all of Unit 1 - The nature of law and the English Legal System, Unit 2 - Criminal Law, Unit 3 - tort and Unit 4 - Contract or Human Rights. Is this necessary?? What is recommended/required?? I came across stuff that was saying that you don't have to learn everything, you only need to focus on a certain amount of topics within the units - but it was all from people who were doing the old spec and the info was a bit all over the place. So for the new aqa spec is it the same? And if so, could someone let me know step by step what you need to do? Please help if you can lol I'm feeling so overwhelmed. It's prob sounds like a stupid question but I have this **** called Lyme disease so I've had to put the work off for ages and quite frankly I have no idea what im doing!

yeah that's what I thought but it just seemed like so much content that I thought hopefully I was wrong haha. Especially for nature of law and English legal system like how do you retain all of it. But anyways thanks for replying.

what is AQA? is it another way to qualify as solicitor? or just to demonstrate you have the same knowledge as if you had attended an uni?

It’s an exam board. Just like Edexcel and OCR.

Sorry, I'm not from UK, I've been researching and what I understood is that this is a sort of attestation of knowledge for international students? I still don't get what this stand for and what is it use in real life, why take this if you can sit the QLTS? maybe it is not aimed to qualified lawyers?

It’s the exam people do at 18 (after sitting GCSEs) before university
