For the past two years, the Bar Standards Board has published a report on BPTC Key Statistics. These statistics provide information about the profile and diversity of students embarking on the BPTC, what grades they achieved, and whether or not they were successful in obtaining pupillage after completing the course.  An analysis is set out of how students fared at each of the BPTC providers, and the differences between those studying full-time and part-time.
