Today was the first centrally set exam of the BPTC. This year the BSB has taken responsibility for drafting the Ethics exam, alongside Civil and Crime. It was tough. Really tough, actually.
I was expecting the exam to be a mixture of realistic ethical dilemmas. Instead there were some very tightly drafted, overly specific, questions from minor parts of the Bar Code of Conduct and its associated appendices. I can't moan, though, there was nothing outside of the syllabus, it was just drafted in a way I wasn't expecting.
Here's hoping that on July 5th my results will show that I've done enough.
