Updated 28th January 2021 - COVID-19 Update for April 2021 OSCE assessment candidates
We intend to hold the April OSCE as scheduled in London, subject to government guidelines at the time of the assessment.
Updated 24th March 2021 - Booking Window Update for July 2021 OSCE assessment
We intend to open the July 2021 OSCE booking window at 10am on 12 April 2021.
We advise candidates to submit a booking form as early as possible to ensure the best chance of securing a place.
At this time our priorities continue to be:
1. We will only run exams which can be delivered safely under the guidelines of the UK government and Public Health England.
2. The primary purpose of QLTS is protection of consumers of legal services by ensuring a consistent and appropriate standard at admission as a Solicitor of England and Wales. The security and integrity of the assessment must therefore be maintained
3. We are committed to ensuring that the QLTS can be administered to as many candidates as possible in 2021 (and beyond).
Candidates are advised to familiarise themselves with the government requirements.
The UK government has recently announced changes to the quarantine requirements for those who are arriving into the UK from abroad. We strongly recommend that candidates monitor all and any changes which may impact upon their plans for the OSCE assessment. Kaplan QLTS will also monitor the situation. If there are any changes which may impact upon the OSCE assessments we will email candidates who have confirmed bookings directly in due course.
