We recommend reading our previous article “Unveiling the SRA Syllabus for the SQE” to gain a comprehensive understanding of the exam structure, content, and assessment criteria.

Step 2: Select a Suitable Exam Date

Once you’re familiar with the SQE exam, you need to identify a suitable exam date that aligns with your study schedule and career goals. It’s important to plan ahead and give yourself enough time to prepare adequately. Consider factors such as the availability of study resources, time commitments, and any personal obligations.

Step 3: Create an Account on the SQE Exam Portal

Before you can book your SQE exam, you’ll need to create an account on the SQE Exam Portal. This portal is where you’ll find all the necessary information about the exam, including available dates, exam centers, and booking details.

Step 4: Choose an Exam Center

Once you have access to the SQE Exam Portal, you can select your preferred exam center. It’s advisable to choose an exam center that is convenient for you in terms of location and accessibility. Remember, the exam center you choose will be your designated venue for the exam, so choose wisely.
