If you want to do English, then send your books back! The Global material is only about 40% – 50% applicable to the English variant.March 21, 2012 at 12:44 am #95620
Hi mike thanks for all your helpful responses here. Is there a reason why we should pick the english/irish one over the global one or does it matter? I reged for irish one but im thinking of switching to global. Thanks.March 23, 2012 at 10:58 am #95621
English is particularly aimed at the English market whereas global is more general. Crucially, Global variant is not as case orientated as English. Equally, Global looks at international conventions ( Arbitration, Sale of Goods, Cross-border disputes, Incoterms etc ) and is therefore less specific than the application of 17th Century English Common Law principles to 21st Century contractual disputes in Moreton in Marsh
Personally, I love the English Law with its quirky cases and “illogical” judgements but I can understand why a non-natural English speaker would prefer Global. How easy is it for you to remember the case name Partridge v Crittenden? And how easy is it to remember Petrauskaite v Aleksandraviciute? Binkauskaite v Leskiene?
If you’re not a natural English speaker, the preponderance of English cases can be a frightening prospect.
Global seems to me to be more a question of learning the rules.
Having said all this, there is about 50% of the exam common to both Global and English and I’ve had students wrongly enter for Global when they meant English. They’ve studied English, realised their error, self-studied Global for a couple of days, sat the Global, and passed.
Does that help?March 27, 2012 at 6:36 pm #95622

I’ve had the same problem with BPP sending my the Global book where i’m booked onto the English variant exam.
Does anyone know how the revision courses work with the variants? I’m currently booked on one with BPP but now I have no idea whether it’s suppose to be for Global or English!!! I can’t find any information on their booking forms etc… Would it be one or the other or a combination?
This is such a mess I think i’m going to postpone until the December sitting as I definitely wanted to sit English and have ended up with Global materials…great…April 7, 2012 at 6:42 pm #95625
CONTACT BPP! A bit dramatic to postponeApril 8, 2012 at 7:46 am #95626
I will contact them on Tuesday when they’re open. I tried yesterday before 2pm but they didn’t seem to be picking up! I felt a bit dramatic yesterday, have calmed down today though
Thank youApril 20, 2012 at 5:29 pm #95627

Hi Mike, I’m presently studying in the UK and would like to sit for the Dec diet. My problem is I would be relocating to another country say in 2 years time and I am wondering if I need to sit for the Eng or Global version in regards to F4 as well as international or Uk in other modules..July 27, 2012 at 8:12 pm #95631
