law exams are not a measure of how much law you know, they are a measure of how good your short term memory is. i know people who know just as much law as i do, and if a qualified lawyer would be able to give as much help as i would be able to, however, because they cant remember specific cases/statutes and dates, they dont get as good an exam mark as other people. this is just wrong. i personally have a very good short term memory, and am able to cram as much as possible the night before an exam, and am thus able to get a better mark than others. but if the examiners think that people are memorising cases/statutes to long term memory and are gonna remember them long after the exam, then i can only say to them, FFS YOU COMPLETE IDIOTS!!!
