SQE2 Mock Tests and Practice Questions

The SQE2 assessment is conducted through a series of oral and written simulations in six legal skills covering each practice area.

SQE2 Assessment - Areas of Law

This kind of role-playing exercise can be quite stressful for candidates to undertake, but the best way to reduce that stress is to practise these skills as much as possible through SQE2 mock simulations which are designed to mirror the actual assessment as much as possible (further assessment information for each SQE2 station is available by clicking the links below):

  • Client interview – an SQE2 simulation with both oral and written components, together assessing the candidate’s ability to communicate effectively with the client and collect the pertinent information. The oral interview is supplemented by a handwritten attendance note. We conduct this SQE2 mock simulation with both the oral and written components, similar to the exam i.e. you will have the opportunity to submit a handwritten attendance note for our tutors to mark.
  • Advocacy – an oral SQE2 assessment, evaluating the quality of the candidate’s submissions and their ability to advocate in a court of law.
  • Legal writing – a written SQE2 assessment, testing the candidate’s written communication skills.
  • Legal drafting – a written SQE2 mock station, assessing the candidate’s ability to draft different legal documents and clauses, and complete forms.
  • Legal research – a written SQE2 assessment aimed at measuring the candidate’s ability to analyse large amounts of information with varying levels of difficulty.
  • Case & matter analysis – a written SQE2 assessment evaluating the candidate’s ability to advise on multiple legal issues. We conduct this SQE mock exam through a combination of oral and written components, i.e. candidates first submit a written work, the tutor goes through it and leaves comments, followed by a short video call to discuss the student’s improvement.
SQE2 Simulations

It is crucial for students to choose carefully from the variety of SQE2 courses and training offerings currently available in the solicitor training arena. Based on our years of experience helping candidates to prepare for the QLTS OSCE assessments, we have learned that the best way for students to learn is to “get their hands dirty” and attempt mock stations with individual feedback from expert tutors so that they can learn effectively from their mistakes.

Some SQE training providers offer SQE2 sample questions or scenarios along with a “suggested answer” that a student can review with the aim of developing their own skills through the approach taken by others.

In fact, we have found that if a student is simply provided with these types of SQE sample materials, without the option of having their own work checked and receiving direct feedback on it, many will not even attempt to perform the exercise themselves. Even if they do make some effort to work through the exercise, it won’t be as effective as a more thorough mock exercise with real-life personalised feedback. Students cannot objectively assess themselves, so this kind of self-guided approach will not work well for SQE preparation.

OSCEsmart SQE2 mock stations

Our Smart Methodology is designed around what DOES work: the principle of active learning, where students engage in their own learning through actively participating in mock simulations, receiving personalised feedback from experienced tutors, and learning from their mistakes.

We have built a dedicated Superexam platform where students can safely attempt SQE mock stations in any area of law and discover both their strengths and the weaknesses that they need to work on before sitting the real test.

This approach ensures that students can actively develop their legal skills and solidify their legal knowledge in their long-term memory, which will benefit them enormously in the SQE and in real-life practice.

Some of our past students came to us after trying other training providers but failing the SQE assessments, and then successfully passed and qualified as solicitors after honing their skills through our training and SQE2 mock simulations.

See what some of our past students have to say about our mock stations.

We are continuously developing and improving our Superexam platform to ensure that every combination of legal skill and area of law is included, honing the search functionality, and even tailoring instances for law firms to use for their own SQE or other organisational training needs.

Our core mission is to support the training and development of the next generation of solicitors for the betterment of the legal professional as a whole, and this platform is specifically designed to do just that.

Superexam flexible pricing policy

Some providers prescribe fixed packages to students with different SQE sample materials but with a very limited number of individually-marked mocks in each skill and area of law, which in our opinion is the key tool to prepare. Every candidate is different, with unique experiences, knowledge and skills, and with different budgets, availability and training needs.

We have therefore designed our training offerings and costs and fees to be as flexible as possible so that students can truly tailor their SQE preparation to their own needs, while still offering bulk package discounts.

Here’s how our pricing policy works:

  1. Students can top up their Superexam account and receive Smart Credits (SCs), where 1 SC = £1
  2. These SCs can then be used to purchase SQE mock stations, group sessions, or lectures through the Superexam platform
  3. Discounts are available at certain top-up thresholds (see table below), where students can receive the purchased number of SCs at a discounted price (e.g. 1,000 SCs at a 5% discount for £950)
  • Note: These discounts are only available if the student hits the threshold in one purchase, or only for subsequent purchases where the student hits the threshold in multiple top-ups (i.e. discounts cannot be applied retrospectively). We therefore recommend that students plan their preparation needs carefully and top up their account in one larger lump sum up front to avail of the discounts immediately.
Our Discounts

We have designed this structure for the Superexam costs and fees to ensure that students can avail of “bulk package” discounts while still maintaining full flexibility over which skills or areas of law they need to focus on in their SQE2 preparation.

We are always happy to recommend certain combinations of mock stations to suit each candidate’s specific situation, but there is no obligation on the candidate’s part.

You are ultimately the owner and designer of your own customised training programme.
