SQE Exam Dates

SQE Assessment Dates - 2024 to 2025

At any point during the year, you may create an account as an SQE candidate.

Booking and sitting for SQE2 is permissible only after successfully completing SQE1, or if you’ve received an exemption from the SRA for the entirety of SQE1.

Should you choose to take your assessment outside the UK, it’s advisable to verify the timing when making your booking. Assessment start times will vary at international centres.

Listed below are the scheduled SQE assessment dates for 2024 to 2025. This includes the dates when results will be released, where confirmed, as well as the deadline for the law and practice material to be examined. All the times mentioned refer to the UK time on those specific dates.
