The credibility paper is the one which uses corroboration so it makes sense it is corroboration.. who uses circumstances anyway.. you dont need it.

lol that wouldn't make sense because CRAVEN is about assessing credibility so credibility can't be one of the criteria

Like a footprint or a fingerprint, I think.

The syllabus says corroboration, though.

Lulz, we made the following mnemonics:
v. nice bra - Vested interest (to lie or to tell the truth)
- Neutrality
- (In)consistency
- Corroboration
- Expertise
- Bias
- Reputation
- Ability to see

..and some other here and there mnemonics:
cc braven
crab vine

I prefer CC Braven, tbh.

Definition straight from book ;

Details about the actual situation, e.g time of day, weather conditions, that can help people infer what might have happened.

Fingerprints are circumstantial evidence

Were you given the green OCR booklet to work through?

Well, in there it says the C is for Circumstances and the definition is:

Do the details of the time, conditions, place, or any evidence left behind the scene provide clues about what might have happened or what might be true?

How do you revise for critical thinking? I did the CRAVEN module in January, I think I got 81 UMS but I didn't revise for that.

I'm thinking I'll just cram the definitions of everything. The exams in about 2 and a half hours, I've got time

What, Paper 2?

A - multiple choice, B - analysing argument, C - the argument writing section, I think.

A flaw is something that makes the arguement weaker... They are a whole different types (theyre mentioned earlier in this thread).

Anyways how long are you suppose to spend on each section? In the past papers, the multiple choice range from 20 mins to 40 mins. :s
