Dear Solicitors Regulation Authority,
Could you please tell me how many UK Universities that deliver the Legal Practice Course (LPC) have requested exam change formats in the years 2016 -2019?
Of those exam change formats could you please list what they were and how many were accommodated or refused?
I require no identifying information.

Dear Ms Smith,
Thank you for your email.
We have not received any requests from UK Universities to change the format of the LPC in 2016 - 19. We only require Universities to inform us if they revise the assessment strategy and/or assessment regulations in a way that extends beyond clarification of the strategy/regulations submitted with the original validation application.
The SRA has set out the minimum standards for the assessment of students on LPCs. Providers assessment strategies must comply with these requirements which are set out in the LPC Information Pack. (https://www.sra.org.uk/students/resource...)
