    Hi!

    I'm studying law at the moment for AS...is there anyone who can give me advice on how to revise for this exam (in january) and how i would be able to achieve a grade A?
    I'm feeling quite uneasy about law (even though i enjoy it so far!) mainly because my teacher does not really push us hard enough and frankly doesnt seem too bothered.
    can anybody please help?
    thank you very much
    help much appreciated !

    Hey, I'm currently doing A-level Law and I got a grade "C" in sources but a grade "A" overall. The best way to revise sources is to use/memorise the mark scheme and what the examiners are actually telling you to do. It's one thing knowing all the content, but you really do get the top marks for writing it how they want you to do. I'm resitting sources too, has your teacher predicted what is going to come up and when is your exam? good luck!

    BSB - thank you so much for your help!!
    nope my teacher has not said anything!
    but i do know when it is...
    i am going to try as many past papers as i can.
    i just wasn't sure on which is the best way to plan your answer and how much content is needed for a 12 to 15 marks question.
    Also, you know when the second part of the exam paper includes scenarios, how much do you need to write as it is worth 5 marks each..
    can anybody help?
    thanks BSB again!

    Hey no probs! erm those 5 questions i would spend about 15-20 minutes in total and i would write about maybe a paragraph or 3/4 of a page dependin on how much is needed. The scenarios will usually refer to a case which has similar points, so use that case to decide for each person. So if say Bill was charged with theft or something in i don't know R V Bill or something. If the case is susan has been charged with theft, advise her in blah blah. Use that case to refer to points which will help you in your answer.

    I- Identify the issues
    R- Recall the law
    A- apply the law
    C= conclude.

    Hope this helps! is the exam 12th of Jan bdw?
