We recently had the opportunity to sit down with some exam experts to answer the most burning questions about the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE). In this Q&A session, we will unveil some of the hidden secrets and provide valuable insights to help you succeed in your SQE journey. So without further ado, let’s dive right in!
Q: What is the SQE, and how does it differ from the old system?
A: The SQE, or Solicitors Qualifying Examination, is a new assessment introduced by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) to replace the old system of Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) and Legal Practice Course (LPC). Unlike the previous system, the SQE assesses practical skills rather than just theoretical knowledge, making it a more comprehensive measure of a candidate’s readiness to practice law.

Q: How many parts are there in the SQE, and what are they?
A: The SQE is divided into two parts. SQE 1 assesses your functioning legal knowledge, while SQE 2 tests your practical legal skills. SQE 1 consists of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) and written tasks, while SQE 2 includes practical simulations and oral assessments. If you’re looking for practice exam questions to prepare for SQE 1, our article on SQE 1 Practice Exam Questions is a great resource.
Q: How should I prepare for the SQE exams?
A: Preparation is the key to success in any exam, and the SQE is no exception. To excel in the SQE, it is essential to develop a structured study plan and make use of reliable study materials. Enrolling in SQE preparation courses, such as the ones offered by SQE Exam Law, can greatly enhance your chances of success.

Q: Are there any differences between the SQE exams and the old system?
A: Yes, there are several differences between the SQE exams and the old system. Firstly, the SQE is a centrally assessed exam administered by the SRA, whereas the old system exams were offered by individual universities and law schools. Secondly, the SQE focuses more on assessing practical skills and application of legal knowledge, whereas the old system placed greater emphasis on theoretical concepts. Furthermore, the SQE allows candidates to take the exams in any order and at their own pace, providing greater flexibility compared to the fixed timeline of the old system.

Q: What are some tips for managing exam stress during the SQE?
A: Exam stress is a common challenge that many candidates face. To effectively manage stress during the SQE, it is crucial to maintain a balanced study schedule, get plenty of rest, and practice self-care. Avoid cramming and instead dedicate regular study sessions to cover the exam syllabus. Additionally, practicing mindfulness techniques and staying positive can help alleviate stress and boost your confidence.
