Booking process for July 2023 SQE2 and July 2023 SQE1

Mar 24, 2023

Booking for the July 2023 SQE2 assessment will open at 10am (UK time) on Wednesday 29 March and closes at 5pm (UK time) on 12 June 2023.

Booking for the July 2023 SQE1 is also open and closes at 5pm (UK time) on 30 May 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 approximate waiting time and as soon as you reach the front of the queue, you will be redirected to that page.

For candidates that want to take the written part of SQE2 in London, we have added a further test centre which is named “SQE2 London Centre” in the candidate booking page. There will be a link to further information about this test centre on 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.

A further sitting of SQE2 in 2023 will take place in October and booking for this opens at 10am (UK time) on 21 June 2023.

Bookings are subject to availability.
