Pursuing higher education is a monumental turning point in one’s life, and one should not shy from investing in their education from an early stage. University admissions for both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes have become increasingly competitive, and even well-qualified and talented candidates may be overlooked if they lack the training to make their application shine. We seek to give you the X factor and empower you to stand head above shoulders from other applicants vying for the same spot.
We have a dedicated programme for UCAS Applications. Within this, we offer assistance with applications to Oxbridge as well. Our consultations can take place either at our student’s houses, at our tuition centres or even online, depending on our students’ needs. Tutors are allocated based on a careful consideration of compatibility with individual students’ backgrounds and interests.
This programme includes pre-course consultations during which tutors and students will brainstorm on application themes and colleges of choice. We then follow this up with discussion on writing and editing application essay through multiple rounds. Following this, we discuss how to prepare for admission interviews based on our tutors’ extensive professional and academic experience within these premier institutions themselves. Interview training is comprehensive, and includes case studies, key word selection, admissions test guidance, interview cues, and interviewee mannerisms.

About the SQE
Before undertaking the SQE you must have a bachelor’s degree, this does not have to be in law. However, if you do have a law degree you can proceed straight to the SQE. If you do not have a law degree you must either undertake the PGDL or other equivalent qualification before proceeding to the SQE.
The SQE is split into two parts, SQE 1 and SQE 2. You cannot take the SQE 2 until you have passed the SQE 1.
SQE 1 is a multiple choice exam that takes place over two days. On each day candidates will take 180 single best answer (multiple choice) questions. On each day the exam lasts approximately five hours with a one hour lunch break in the middle.
The SQE 1 tests candidates on their knowledge of the Functioning Legal Knowledge. Day 1 tests FLK 1 (Functioning Legal Knowledge 1) and Day 2 tests FLK 2 (Functioning Legal Knowledge 2).
Business Law and Practice
The Legal System of England and Wales
Property Law and Practice
Probate Law and Practice
Criminal Law and Practice
Ethics and Professional Conduct is also assessed. This subject is pervasive, meaning it is tested across all the subjects and examinations.
There are two sittings per year for SQE 1, one in January and one in July and candidates have up to three attempts to pass the exam within a six year period. For dates and costings please see the SRA website.
SQE 2 is a much more practical exam. 50% of the SQE 2 is assessed on legal knowledge and 50% is assessed on skills. SQE 2 takes place over five days. Three days of written exams and two days of oral exams. The same subjects are tested as for the SQE, with the exception of Solicitors Accounts, The legal System of England and Wales and Public law. As in SQE 1 Ethics and Professional Conduct will be pervasive throughout all the exams.
There are four sittings per year for the SQE 2: January, April, July and October. For dates and costings please see the SRA website.
There will be two days of oral exams. On both days there will be two exams, one Advocacy exam and one Interviewing exam. One of the advocacy exams will assess Dispute resolution (inclusive of Contract Law and Tort Law), the other advocacy exam will assess Criminal Litigation. One of the interviewing exams will assess Property Practice (inclusive of Land Law) the other interviewing exam will assess Probate practice (inclusive of Trust Law).
There will be three days of written exams. Each day there will be four exams: Case and Matter Analysis, Legal Drafting, Legal Research and Legal Writing. Day one will assess Dispute Resolution (inclusive of Contract Law and Tort Law) and Criminal Litigation. Day two will assess Property Practice (inclusive of Land Law) and Probate law (inclusive of Trust Law). Day three will assess Business Law and Practice (inclusive of Contract Law and Tort Law).
After the exams
Alongside passing both SQE 1 and SQE 2 each candidate must undertake two years of qualifying work experience (QWE) before they can qualify as a solicitor. This can be undertaken before, during or after the SQE.
Qualifying work experience must give the candidate the opportunity to perform more than one of the Solicitor Competencies, as set out by the SRA: SRA | Statement of solicitor competence | Solicitors Regulation Authority. There is no hard and fast rule as to what constitutes QWE so individuals are advised to discuss QWE with their employer before starting work.
Once these two years have been completed you must pass the SRA’s assessment of character and suitability. Once all these steps have been completed you are then fully qualified and can be admitted onto the Roll of Solicitors.
