Presumably because we all want to forget about the horrors of them I'm only fully recovered in the past few days like

However, I do have a question for ye. This was my first sitting and I understand that when the results come out, you log onto the law society website with your ID number and a password? I have the ID number, but no password? Do they send you a letter with it or something?

Yes they send you out a letter saying your password is the word <<Mod deletion>> and when you log in with it you can change it to whatever password you want.

Mod
Gotta be careful with passwords

Hi,

New to law and the FE1 Exams, I intend to give them a crack in April. Regarding exam technique, could someone recommend a text that provides instruction on how to answer exam questions, ILAC/IRAC for problem questions for example? An introductory first year law book might be the thing, any ideas?

Thanks.

I think I remember seeing 'How To Write Law Essays & Exams' by S.I. Strong in my college library. I'm not entirely sure how good it is but it should be a useful introduction. I would also recommend doing a quick Google search; there are a lot of useful websites which provide examples of how you would approach a question using ILAC.

Best of luck

About 40 years ago a Prof Glanville Williams wrote a good book on Legal Study.

As far as i remember it had a section on exam technique.

Gave my copies aeons ago to apprentices - but it is worth reading if available

It is as good a pocket book as you can get. Would recommend.

It's usually 6 weeks after the last exam, so it should be Friday the 25th of November.

Tis a long wait alright!

Would just be nice to say that I've passed 8 exams in my interview!

I know it's annoying waiting for results but I think 6 weeks is a quick enough turnaround given that over 1,000 people sit them?

Also the thought of being in work and having people ask how I got on is horrific, but I am not going to be able to wait til I get home to check them

Hi, could someone please tell me what dates the spring sittings are? (or usually are if they haven't been scheduled yet) Thanks.
