SQE1 and SQE2 written assessments

SQE1 and SQE2 written assessments can be taken at Pearson VUE test centres in the UK and internationally.

If you want to sit your assessment outside of the UK, you should check the timing of your assessment when you book. There will be varied start times for assessments held in international centres.

Pearson Professional Centres in England and Wales comply with the disability access requirements of the Equality Act 2010. The test centres can accommodate a range of alternative arrangements for candidates with special requirements or the need for reasonable adjustments. You can visit Pearson VUE’s website for more information, and you can search where your nearest test centre is. You can not book your assessment on Pearson VUE’s website.
