My teacher has decided that she has set us 8 A-level exams for 2 topics. Is she even allowed to do this? I am explaining very late as exams are due soon but in the real A-level exams we only get 3. How is this fair?

2 topics? Um... I think teachers are just taking their own approch to assesments but I dunno about this tho...
Good luck in your exams, you can do this!

8 x 3 hours exams? Not very likely.

My head teacher and head of year group approves strangely, I just wanted TSR's opinion on this because it does seem a lot for me and my class, when originally we only get 3 papers. We have asked, yet topics that weren't taught to us properly are still coming up.

On 2 topics? Do you mean Criminal Law & Tort law. I think you have gotten confused. She has set 2 tests which consist 8 topics in both crime and 8 topics in Tort. I teach law so that’s what i believe the teacher had done. It’s impossible to set 8 questions on 1 topic like ABH (which is one topic). What I believe the teacher will do is set the Criminal paper and in that criminal paper there will be 8 topics so murder, GBH Defences, and various substantive topics in the criminal law paper. Feel free to ask me anything you need clearing

Nope she explicitly told us that we're sitting 8 papers, 4 for Crim 4 for tort. We haven't a clue how this is being done and we have asked for it to be separate but she did confirm before half-term holiday that it is 8 papers. Which is why I put this up and yes on criminal and tort. Thank you for giving me your view as a law teacher however

Ok so the first paper on crime will include AS content will be spread across 4 papers so ASSUALT/BATTERY /ABH /GBH 20/18 which will consist of English legal system topics I guess. And the paper 3,4 content will consist of A2 topics MURDER/ DIMINSHED RESPONSIBILITY/ LOC or MANSLAUGHTER and the defences e.g intoxication
In fact this is a very clever way of assessing how good you are at problem solving, how much you know the law, and how much you know cases and the structure of each question. So, that the grade you get in the papers is a clear indication of how well you know the content across the 2 years rather than just fluking 1 paper for crime hoping that topics you haven’t covered won’t come up. In fact, I may implement something similar to my students
