The College of Law is investigating an apparent error in one of its exam papers after students claimed that one question was impossible to answer.

A student in the second year of the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in London's Bloomsbury contacted the Gazette to say there had been a 'huge mistake' in the commercial dispute resolution paper taken by students last week.

The student said that one of the questions in the exam made reference to a document connected with a completely different scenario than the one in the question.

A spokeswoman for the ­college said: 'We are aware that there appears to have been an error with a commercial ­dispute resolution LPC paper yesterday and we are now investigating what happened and why.

'A full report will be made to the examination board and external examiners, which will recommend any steps which may be necessary to ensure that no student will be prejudiced by it.'
