    LPC or SQE?

    I certainly have no statistics. 4 of my lawyer children have done the LPC and GDL/PGDL with BPP without exam problems ( two just finished) but that is just anecdotal. I just feel Kaplan made such a mess with those poor SQE candidates recently. They are certainly very different exams and we are...

    LPC or SQE?

    Although the PSC only has one exam with a high pass rate which you take immediately after doing the 3 days finance course and the rest of the PSC is just attending the courses. In most cases BPP and UoL do not mess up the exams whether online or in the exam hall or when doing skills exams in my...

    LPC or SQE?

    Although to be fair to BPP and UoL even if the admin is not always very good they do seem to hold exams on the days agreed, starting on time, even during the pandemic and even when the PGDL moved 100% online in 2020. Enhanced SQE2 does indeed have electives which is required by firms sponsoring...

    LPC or SQE?

    True although with some institutions it is significantly higher. Also the tipping point here is the definite training contract (never mind the electives within the LPC that firms like people do so).

    LPC or SQE?

    I agree. The LPC would be simpler - one course and one exam with a masters student loan for most of the cost available too. The SQE is new, has 50% failure rate I believe so far .

    BPP LPC help. 3Days?

    Thank you for all being so polite to allow an older lawyer in your midst (who with 2 children on the LPC was a bit of a "tiger mother" this year). It was in the 1980s when we were first choosing schools for our older children so it has been a particularly long period of having children in some...

    BPP LPC help. 3Days?

    Just to conclude my comments after today's BPP LPC results- both my twins did fine and had worked very hard and I am very pleased. They will qualify in 2024. I know not everyone has passed, of course, so good luck to anyone who has resits this summer and many thanks to everyone who contributed...

    BPP LPC help. 3Days?

    There is a longer message on the Announcements section of the Hub put up by BPP yesterday about results being issued on Monday 25 July although the gist is pretty much as expected - an email is sent to the student and they search their student number and find their result or something along...

    SQE

    If I had to guess it would be going into the programme on 4 days a week. Also it will depend if you have an LLB or not. if not then you do the two term PGDL BPP course and exam first on the CCP. Then move on to the SQE1 term etc yes, I think it is likely to be assessed - the PGDL./law...

    Is BPP's LPC exam still open book?

    What is said above is correct (both my sons just completed it with BPP in London and I am a lawyer). It was quite complicated last September to work out what was allowed as we were emerging from special covid times, but BPP also obtained permission for a second year (and going forwards for your...

    BPP LPC help. 3Days?

    For anyone still following it we noticed today that BPP seem to have changed the LPC results release date. On the print out in our kitchen with elective names it says 22 July which is what we had down. However we now see the following - so it looks like it has been changed to 25 July: "July...

    BPP LPC help. 3Days?

    It has been an interesting year. My twins finished today as I think have most people (but not everyone - some electives are next week). Probably the masters (which my twins are not doing) might involve a bit more work still. I have also been down memory lane to my Finals course (it was a new...

    BPP LPC help. 3Days?

    Thanks, Daniel. I am glad my son was not the only one to raise the issue. His twin also raised a similar query with BPP because he had only looked at one of the pdfs and obviously, like most people, assumed they were identical until afterwards his twin told him of the difference. Those in that...

    BPP LPC help. 3Days?

    By the way one son has raised a query with BPP today as he thinks that for the pdf document with the online exam yesterday one pdf differed from the supposedly identical one on the left of the screen. His twin did not notice that as he just worked from the pdf you can open up on your screen...

    BPP LPC help. 3Days?

    Today's exam(s) seems to have been pretty tough at least in this house. I hope the rest go better. One of my sons using the downstairs broadband ( we have two separate accounts ./BT lines/numbers one up and down) also was cut out twice (which has never happened in any other exams) but it...

    BPP LPC help. 3Days?

    Thank you. I was much more hands off with my solicitor daughters over 10 years ago as they seemed to be out at BPP 4 days a week (pre-Covid) and exams were not at home and I had 3 younger children and for my work I was also out more. So I had much less time to be "Tiger Motherish" about it...

    BPP LPC help. 3Days?

    Good luck to everyone in next week's elective exams which may be the last exams ever for many people, hopefully (other than the small finance exam in the Professional Skills Course during a training contract, unless LPC resits are required). I just noticed that the exam timetable/dates from...

    Paralegal after LPC?

    If you don't have to pay rent on somewhere may be work abroad in an area not related to law for the fun of it/nominal salary eg in an exotic location in a holiday resort. One of my lawyer children did that. As for paralegalling - yes one of my sons did that for 3 months full time between PGDL...

    BPP LPC help. 3Days?

    I agree with h1, make the SGSs your core revision work/time. I believe my twins did the same. They also had a book LPC Answered and they have Liam Porritt's notes. Just find what works for you. Don't panic. Exactly what you said is fine- go over each SGS.

    BPP LPC help. 3Days?

    All well here on the results front today. It is always a relief, as a parent of twins, when they both do fine. I hope everyone else has done okay.
