all i hear is ppl complaining about question C in crime

i thought question D was also totally unfair and not in the syllabus
Just because with q D it wasn't as obvious that it had nothing to do with the syllabus doesnt mean that it was from the syllabus
the only bit that it could be even remotely related to is this part:

Effectiveness of the Law
• factors to be considered when evaluating the effectiveness of law in achieving justice:
– for individuals: equality, accessibility, enforceability, resource efficiency, protection and recognition of individual rights
– for society: resource efficiency, law as a reflection of community standards and expectations, opportunities for enforcement, appeals and review, balance of individual rights and values and community rights and values


it doesn't talk about the treatment of ppl by the CJS nor does it categorise people into adults and juveniles........but rather into individuals and society which is completely different
once again, those who did juvenile justice will be very much advantaged

SO GET UR COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS ONE ROLLING IN TOO......after all, this one is worth TWELVE marks

personally i did not have much of an issue with this question because it was fairly broad, therefore finding examples of things to put in was not as hard. unlike part (c) where it was that refined it was somewhat ridiculous.

yeah i do agree that part c was alot harder, but that doesnt change the fact that this q still wasn't on the syllabus

i mean if they had asked those q's on something else that actually WAS in the syllabus (eg: purpose of punishment, defences to crime, circumstances of the offence/offender etc etc), i could have gotten full marks

Part C - no one could answer anything about it; Part D - you could sort of answer a bit of it, and hence people complain more about C than D.
well i actually liked D because the if you did the option topic family you learn about how does juvs do get legal aid and how are they dealt with the law :p well i guess i got lucky this yr

Part D at least was broad, you could talk about whatever u thought was relevant but I admit, part c put me off a bit
I don't even know if what I did was right for part d
i talked about legal aid-free for children (as aaaman said-thanks 2 family we knew this :p)-well also crime u learn about it i guess
judicial discretion-daniella dawes-adult
Skaf-teenager or "juvenile" -meh
criminal process
access
stuff like that
think its wrong but
i didn't mention anything about penalties :(

Yeah to tell you the truth i just crapped on for parts c,d and e i think( although i can't actually recall what that one was).
It was all very broad i really didn't know what they were after - it could only have been very vaguely in the syllabus; there was certianly no dot point for it
for d i don't know whether i got 1/12 or 12/12; i really can't tell
Anyone feel the same way?

B,C and D

Personally i thought that question B,C and D were all not really in the syllibus. The crime section usually focuses on actuall crimes and not thoughts on the crime in society, how the hell were we supposed to throw in case study's in that question?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
I think I threww in some random case study's but can't really remember, I used the one were the bloke got shot in his home during an illigal police raid, cant remember the name of it now. The whole sectipon was totaly out of whack!
