Getting a TC/job will still be determined by other things like results, internship performance, etc. [Of, assuming you don't have connections lah. If you do, then pretty much anything goes.]
The more qualifications the better actually. I've seen ppl with UK and SG called who are very hot in demand.

Pretty sure theyíre hot in demand cause to be UK trained they must have been damn zai to be hired in London to begin with. The fact that they come back inevitably means they also become SG qualified.

Correlation, not causation.

Ever heard of QLTS? The trend is usually to get sg called then English called, not the other way.

That's definitely the trend, but wouldn't it be a more advantageous for international firms if associates aren't required to take any further tests to get qualified in another jurisdiction whilst working?

Interesting. What's your opinion on Australian graduates that are dual-qualified in Australia and Singapore?

Frankly only the New York bar and the England & Wales qualification has sufficient value if you for most international firms
Bcos most international contracts are English law governed documents

Most international contracts are English law governed documents so a UK fch degree plus an English law qualification (either barrister of solicitor) is the way forward and only if you dream of the Milbank salary.

Qlts is closed book and mcq. As long as you understand the general principles you should be able to make good guesses. As for the practical, as long as you are a 1-2 pqe it's quite manageable.
