go and paralegal while studying for resit. dont just stay unemployed.

the practical experience + pocket money you get is a better use of your time. easier to spin work exp as paralegal than to say you had to retake.

that is if you want to stay in law. it seems the trend now is follow uk style. dunno how many uk friends you have from uni, but if you stay in touch or stalk them on fb you will see many of them paralegal for few yrs before getting tc.

ofc they maybe didnt fail the LPC there la. but its making the best of a bad situation.

if you too concerned about saving face or just give up on law cos you are mentally weak, you are posting in the wrong thread.

All strawberry mah. The older generation really aspired be lawyers. The younger generation who study law overseas are too dumb to get into local law schools, but still want a semi prestigious course that is perceived to be better than the typical arts, soc science, accounting or business degrees.

But they're also too lazy to study STEM, which everyone knows requires actual hard work. So they spend mommy and daddy's money to study law overseas lor.

It is well known that (a) most of the kids who study law overseas are upper middle class and (b) law is not an overseas uni course typically offered by government or private sector scholarship programmes. Hence the guys aren't going there on academic merit.

So the vast majority of overseas law grads, apart from those who got into oxbridge, are your run of the mill rich kid underachievers. No wonder Bar exam also can fail. They don't have the aptitude nor are willing or have the incentive to put in the hard work.

You can OK Boomer me all you want but deep down, you guys know that my assessment is spot on.

Must be a competitor. This thread is full of recruiters trying to stir ****. hey recruiters, we're watching you! We know who are the lousy and opportunistic ones and those that are good. Word travels.

Suspiciously, Part B has remained easy (driving with your eyes closed). Why so? I am glad they are raising stringency of Part B exams. I see a lot of local kids failing Part B too. These are the kids who pretend they have aptitude, come online on these forums to bash other schools for their failures. The profession as a whole should root out those without aptitude.

It should be blind to which school you came from. After all, there is a need to retain public confidence in the legal profession.

BOTH part A and B should reflect the pass rates in other jurisdictions.

Part A used to be 90% pass rate in 2010-2014. Same as Part B.

In fact, if Part A and local syllabus is equivalent, those who get 2.2s in local universities should be barred from practice until they can at least get a 2.1 standard.

Part B should be marked on a hidden bell curve to maintain a low pass rate. Problem solved. Parity and if you really suck whichever school you come from you can't practise.

Somehow, although Part A was made to gradually have a 30% pass rate (anecdotal), Part B retained its 90% pass rate until 2021. Lucky they are raising the standards of BOTH.

Spoken like a true overseas graduate who doesn't understand the rigour of the local law courses. Part A is NOT equivalent to local law standards. It is equivalent in breadth but nowhere near in depth, and is in fact a watered down crash-course on Singapore law that anybody who bothers to take 2-3 weeks before the papers to study, can and should pass on the first go.

Second lower local law school grads are easily equivalent to 2.1s from the UK. Local law school graduates who are third class honours can't practice and they're already a step up from UK 2:2s, who are not graded on a curve.
