    I just wanted some advice/re-assurance really. I am in the midst of my Stage 1 LPC exams at the moment and they are not going very well at all. In fact, I am 99% certain I have managed to fail one today. I have always tried to be a good student, I've got a first class law degree and have always tried to work really hard but I fear I have just over-stretched myself this year - I work two jobs (one legal related the other not) as I need to afford to live (literally!) and it only leaves me one day off in the week to do LPC work. I have found it difficult to keep my head above water and I think now I'm paying the ultimate price. If my very possible fears come true and I have ended up failing one or two modules does anyone think I still have a shot at a training contract (I have not managed to secure one thus far) or may I as well give up now?! I just feel so deflated at the moment and really don't know what to do!

    Hi There

    I know someone who is a fairly successful lawyer in entertainment she failed one module of her LPC years ago and had a first degree. Although TC are much more competitive now they seem to focus on A level results and first degree more than anything else. Even people with all the requirements are rejected so if you keep trying and applying it should be fine.
