So properly computed, Part B + PTC (1Y) = 2 Year SQE + 1 year LPC. SG NQ takes 1 year, UK takes 3 years hence UK NQ = 2 PQE for SG.

This *might* change in future. Who knows.
LPC if remember correctly has accelerated version if you're sponsored by your firm. 7 months start to finish, full time, fail anything you lose your TC.

No only Slaughter and May does that. My firm had people who failed modules and they just retook during their TC.

It wouldn’t hurt to let people who fail a bar exam subject take it again in another year. Rather than making bar exams more difficult, a better option would be to mark on a bell curve and only allow 50% to pass each year. The remainder will just have to retake it in another year. In the interim, they should be made a legal exec in firms rather than an associate

They take Canadians and Australians - why would they treat Singaporeans differently?

You take the bar after you’ve started working

Number 1 - Canadian lawyers have JDs, like US lawyers. It is the general perception that a JD lawyer is better than an LLB lawyer, since JD is regarded as a post-grad professional degree in the Anglo American world.

Number 2 - the global economy of high finance and transaction is still very much a white man's world. It is just the reality that someone from the OECD economies of Canada or Australia, will be preferred over someone from Singapore, even if they're theoretically equally qualified and/or experienced.

This is the harsh reality of life. and no I'm not a racial equality SJW.

Ooof. Someone hasn't actually worked in an international firm before I see and likes to talk purely based on his own prejudices

So you're saying they should fail people who would otherwise be qualified just to keep numbers low? U okay?

When the bar exams become more difficult, X% of people would fail anyway.
Rather than make it difficult which really increases the stress level for everyone, marking it on a bell curve to allow (100-X)% of people to pass makes the most sense
