The total candidate fee for the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) is £3,980.
All fees are VAT exempt.
You must book FLK1 and FLK2 separately but pay for them both in a single payment at time of booking. FLK1 and FLK2 must be taken in the same assessment window (unless an exemption applies).
You must book both the written and oral assessments together, and pay at the time of booking.
The fees you pay will depend on whether you have an exemption and what your exemption is for.
