Yes, I took 2 FASS modules as part of the 3 allowable non-law modules back in my day as an NUS law student. Spent 1 afternoon studying for one and 1.5 days studying for the other prior to the final papers. Half the time was literally just organizing my study notes into a logical flow.

Got A and A- for both. Literally the easiest 2 subjects I did in my 4 years.

Meanwhile NUS and SMU students alr slogging it out in hunger games against their batchmates for the past 4 years.
I'm from delisted. My FCH was terribly easy, I got to eat in Battersea and my prospects are better than NUS.

Classic clueless Singaporeans going on and on about universities and academic rigour. Grow up and move on. Outside of appeal cases how much academic skill is there in practice.

Take a look at uk and us forums and the level of discussion they are having about work and comp - don’t be a kumgong and xiasuay sinkie.

If you think you’re underpaid - ask and look at genuine responses. Want to move to international firms - ask which pay real international rates.

If you don’t want to be a partner move to international and grind your youth away for upper middle class income before going in house or changing industries.

If you are gunning for partnership, build your network and stay in a local firm for the best bet to that sweet equity.

Are you an idiot?

I was literally just stating how the prior poster's suggestion of a fixed % failure rate is fundamentally similar to the current system in Part A, and soon-to-be Part B, which is a bell-curve. The "increased difficulty" of Part B shouldn't scare the OP (or are you the OP) since the markers have likely been informed to at least pass x%.

However, his suggestion of a strict 50% pass rate (instead of a malleable bell-curve) means that people who would otherwise pass in one year would fail in another, and vice-versa, with the effect that competition against your Part B batchmates becomes super-pronounced.

Instead of everyone trying to help each other to pass a "difficult" exam, you will have assholes (much like yourself) saying that it's a dog-eat-dog world like in NUS/SMU. People will start mugging like crazy for Part B and pushing the pass rate super high, which is antithetic to his stated aim of making Part B "easier" by keeping the exam simple and having a strict % failure rate.

His suggestion of a 50%-failure rate instead of the likely "hidden" Part A/B bellcurve with the "increased difficulty" of Part B just makes people less likely to cooperate and help each other for Part B.

Strangely enough, if you search battersea law, you'll see that Baker Mackenzie W&L paid google to make them one of the first links.
