Contracts Exam Answer

Postby nodummy » Wed May 02, 2012 9:09 pm

After about a thounsand words, I realized that the agreement I was analyzing lacked consideration. Time was running low so I just put "...WAIT, I just realized the agreement lacks consideration because..." and talked about this for a paragraph. Do you think I will get any credit considering the first 2/3 of my analysis was wrong?

Did something like that on a CrimLaw exam, where it turned out in one sentence hung over onto page two, that the dude comes back to life after being shot an killed.

Lets just say, it wasn't my best grade.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Pretty much no professor is going to just give you a zero if you miss consideration and analyze the whole thing wrong, they'll just take off some points for missing consideration then follow the rest of your analysis to see how it is assuming there is consideration. Plus you managed to go back and find the lack of consideration issue anyway. I'm sure you'll still get some points off for following the wrong track of analysis for most of the answer, but it shouldn't be the huge impact you think it'll be.

Just relax and don't think about it.

It's not unusual to have stuff panic-inserted out of order. They see it a lot.
