so thank u board of studies for killing off my future
i reckon, legal was the exam i was actually confident with, and crime was my best area, and thanks to that 7marker its stuffed...not only the 7marker, the whole q just wasn't fairkouklitsa said:TOTALLY in the same boat as you. how do they expect us to get uais of 99.6 when they go screwing up 7 WHOLE MARKS worth of our paper? legal was my best subject and now its all gone wrong
i agree, i think my teacher's gonna put in a complaint too because that question was seriously inappropriate, not at all in the syllabus and that too worth 19 marks altogether....that's 19% of the paper. which is just wrong for those who had no idea at all(most of us lol).tasha1188 said:omg part (c) was absolutely stupid...i heard that they mite not be counting that questions coz yeh...kah i was like what the hell!!!

As for legal studies, I thought the test was ok on the whole... but crime was a bit dodgy. Had to dig really deep for the 7marker. You could also have discussed (in the 12 marker) alternative means of dealing with juvenile crime under the Young Offenders Act (cautions, warnings, youth justice conferencing etc.)
In the 7 marker I talked about institutionalised inequality, the likelihood of males to commit violent crime/crime against the person as opposed to females (who are less likely to commit on the whole.) I also talked about sexual abuse for males in juvenile detention etc.
I hope you all did really well - I'm feeling a strange affinity with all students at the mo that I think comes from excess study.
WEll ive already written the BOS an email.. i dont actually know how far that will get.aimsley said:how many people's schools are putting in formal complaints to the board? I've been suggested my a number of people to do it, as the more do it the more attention they pay, I suppose.
