Jun 16, 2023

Booking opens on 21 June

Booking for the October 2023 SQE2 assessment will open at 10am (UK time) on 21 June and closes at 5pm (UK time) on 11 September 2023.

On Wednesday morning, you will not be able to gain access to your candidate account 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 log in and book.

Pre-booking steps

In order to book for SQE2, you MUST have completed the pre-booking steps (found in your candidate account), 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.
