Anyone who does legal studies pls help me out on what I’m supposed to study for this task my teacher won’t tell me what the long response question will be
Hello, if I was doing it I would study sentencing procedures in the criminal justice system and then reference mitigating and aggravating factors and how impact or reduce the impact of the sentencing of a sentence
Thanks for the responses guys 😄
You should have been giving the outcome ie, H3 at the start of the topic they might help in seeing what you need to study for.
also, Criteria says “understanding of sentencing procedures” so I would learn that. Have a look at your syllabus too, under themes and challenges. They are often used for HSC questions so your teacher might be using them too
Btw you can easily find sample questions on past HSC exams, they help heaps
Reading the criteria, I’d suggest something similar to Jordan, but I might add that it may be a broad question such as:
“Evaluate the effectiveness of sentencing in the criminal justice system” or something to that nature. In that case, knowing the purposes of sentencing (deterrence, rehabilitation, retribution and incapacitation) may help in evaluating its effectiveness. It may also play out into mitigating/aggravating factors.
