Individual training and practical guidance for solicitors qualifying exam ‘QLTS OSCE’ (SQE)




What is QLTS OSCE?

QLTS OSCE is the second, but most difficult part of the alternative route to qualify as a solicitor of England and Wales, under Qualified Lawyer Transfer Scheme or QLTS. In order to become eligible for the OSCE, candidates must first pass a multiple choice test (MCT) (limited exceptions apply). The exam was previously known as Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test (QLTT).

Success Stories

About OSCEsmart

OSCEsmart is an online course initially developed by Dr Olga Pogrebennyk, who obtained her LLB, LPC and LLM from Nottingham Law School and went on to pass the QLTS with distinction. Dr Pogrebennyk decided to carefully design a cost-effective resource which would be pragmatic, affordable, and simple in order to help others to succeed in the OSCE. This unique methodology is adopted in order to understand the substantive law, practice areas and individual training of the candidates’ skills while remaining close to the exam conditions. Our successful candidates join the course as OSCE tutors (tutoring-solicitors) and harness their first-hand experience to assist other candidates in preparing for the exam. All together, we call it OSCEsmart.

Course overview

From September 2021, OSCEsmart is introducing the SQE exam preparation course, developed to train would-be solicitors for the Solicitors Qualifying Examination.


Our SQE2 training revolves around personalised 1-to-1 SQE2 mock simulations with individual feedback. These mock exams serve three primary purposes:

While we specialise in preparing foreign qualified lawyers for the second part of the exam, we now also provide training for SQE1 that includes pre-recorded lectures and specialised notes, live revision lectures, MCQs, revision materials and many others.

With our SQE1+SQE2 pack3000), you can enjoy the advantages of simultaneous access to SQE lectures, notes, flashcards and MCQs as part of the SQE1 training, and one-to-one individual mocks as part of practical SQE2 prep.
