The Concentrate Questions and Answers series offers the best preparation for tackling exam questions. Each book includes typical questions, diagram answer plans, suggested answers, author commentary and advice on study skills. This chapter presents sample exam questions on the inchoate offences and accessories, along with suggested answers. The doctrine of joint enterprise is also considered, especially the decision in R v Jogee which reverses the previous common law position. Inchoate offences and issues of accessorial liability can feature on exam papers in the form of questions dealing with discrete topics, but typically they will feature as part of a problem question dealing with a range of substantive offences. For this reason, candidates sometimes fail to prepare properly to deal with these areas. There is also the fact that accessorial liability is amongst the most confusing and conceptually difficult areas of criminal liability. Some clarity has been achieved in this area in the Supreme Court’s decision in R v Jogee.
