Booking process for July 2023 SQE1 and April 2023 SQE2

Mar 20, 2023

Booking for the July 2023 SQE1 assessment will open at 10am (UK time) on Wednesday 22 March. Booking for the SQE2 in April 2023 is still open and closes at 5pm (UK time) on 23 March 2023.

On Wednesday morning, candidates will not be able to gain access to their candidate accounts from approximately 9am (UK time) until the booking window opens at 10am (UK time).

Should a large number of candidates want to book an assessment at the same time, a queuing system will be in place to allow for fair access to the booking process.

If this facility is used, the waiting page will indicate your estimated waiting time and as soon as you reach the front of the queue, you will be redirected to that page.

In order to book for SQE1 or SQE2, you MUST have completed the pre-booking steps, as usual for any assessment. If you do not complete these steps, you risk delaying being able to book.

The Candidate Services Team will only be able to help you with queries relating to booking if you are logged in to your candidate account.

Booking for the SQE1 in July will close at 5pm (UK time) on Tuesday 30 May 2023. Further sittings of SQE1 will take place in January 2024 and July 2024.

Booking for the SQE2 in April 2023 is already open and closes at 5pm (UK time) on 23 March 2023.

Bookings are subject to availability.
