Because the partner/director is going to ask during results season. If people take leave during the resitting period out of nowhere... we will know one la

It's not worth hiding, very easy to find out and repercussions of being caught lying are just not worth it.

Anyway I heard from incoming trainees this year it's take home open book exam, one must be dense as a rock or hopelessly lazy to fail la. So relax, only those who deserve to fail will fail.

I can corroborate OP's account of Dhvani Doshi - very elusive, opaque, and ghosts. Don't waste our time brah.

New to the list - Sophie Chen and her posse from Daode Search - extremely unprofessional in terms of approach and follow-up. Work on your grammar brah.

Last but certainly the worst I've come across so far - Elly Lailee from ANSA. Jezuz H Christ where to start? Starts digging / stirring **** about your firm / team on the first call, asks for your comp in hard numbers, and has no leads for you. Absolute shocker. Be very wary - comes across as the kind to throw you under the bus. You can sense the toxicity from this one. Anyone with similar experiences? Would be great to hear.
Another shocker from ANSA....

Also why does it matter ah... I've never heard of anyone not being retained because they have to re-sit Part B.. I guess unless you fail so bad you delay your call by a year lol

Doesn't matter for those with already strong portfolio or liked by boss/ got connection. Also depends on the subject, some are known to have higher failure rates.

But for those fighting to not be seen as bottom feeders.. They need to demonstrate why they are assets and failing part b isn't going to help them.

Why the interest in moving to Singapore, is it the lure of the exotic nubile Singapore Girl on SIA advertisements? I'm afraid to burst your yellow fever bubble but most local girls are far from that.

Are law degree holders allowed to apply for MA programmes? (e.g. Bloomberg, JP etc) And what are the chances that one gets offered the position?
