Generally, you should have completed the academic stage of your training by obtaining either a qualifying law degree (a good honours degree) or the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL/CPE).
The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) requires you to prove to us that you have a qualifying law degree or have met the CPE/GDL requirements. You need to do that before you start the LPC by providing us with a copy of your degree transcript or proof that you have successfully completed the GDL.
