SQE 2 exams will be in April 2022

Where will they be?

You will be able to see through the portal the SRA will set up:

SQE 1 will be at Pearson Vue Assessment centres in UK & internationally

The Oral for SQE 2 initially in Assessment Venues = London, Manchester & Cardiff


Will be sent to the candidate direct unless they are solicitor apprentices, where they will go to the training provider.
