GSL final exams: More than 80 % pass

Eighteen per cent of the candidates who took the exam failed two or more papers

More than 80 per cent of students of the Ghana School of Law (GSL) who sat for the Part II exams have made it.

The results were released on Thursday, 3 November 2022.

The exam, which is the final one at the professional law school, qualifies one to be called to the bar.

Reports indicate that of the over 800 Part II students, more than 80 per cent passed.

Eighteen per cent of the candidates failed two or more papers.

More than 60 per cent of the candidates who passed were part of the post-call class.

850 candidates have, therefore, passed the examination and are expected to be called to the bar on Friday, 11 November 2022.

A candidate must obtain at least 50 per cent out of 100 in order to pass a paper.

Where a candidate fails in one or two papers, the candidate is ‘referred’.

However, a candidate is ‘repeated’ if they fail three or more papers. 

The exam, conducted by the Independent Examination Committee (IEC) of the General Legal Council (GLC), was written in July.
