Legal qualification in England & Wales has changed. So shouldn’t your prep also change? Now that you’ve aced your SQE1, it’s time to get to grips with the skills-based testing of SQE2.

BARBRI SQE2 Prep provides practitioner expertise in practical transactions and legal skills. BARBRI tells you the criteria and standards to which you are being assessed, shows you how to undertake the task and provides multiple practice opportunities to hone your skills.

Our part-time 12-week course is offered twice a year leading into the scheduled exams in April and October.

Work smarter, not harder

Flexible study

Tackle the work when you like, from half-hour chunks to full days. It’s your call and we’re here to support you every step of the way.

Diagnostic Assessment

We offer all students a diagnostic assessment to look for any gaps in your legal knowledge before you start the course.

Access to SQE1 Prep materials

When you enrol onto the SQE2 you’ll be given our SQE1 materials to review, and you’ll have access to these for the duration of your course.

The SQE2 exam

The SQE2 exam will take place over the course of a few days in London and will include four oral assessments and 12 written assessments. Marks from the individual exercises are then combined into one overall mark.

The oral assessments in SQE2 will cover interview and attendance note/legal analysis as well as advocacy. The written assessments will cover case and matter analysis, legal writing, legal research and legal drafting.

The SQE2 exam costs £2,422 in addition to any prep course you take, and the fee is paid directly to The SRA. You can find out more about the cost of the SQE exams here.

Maybe BARBRI got you through SQE1. Or you chose another provider but weren’t thrilled with the experience. Maybe you’ve got your LPC behind you. Starting your SQE2 journey can be daunting, but it’s easy to get started with BARBRI.

If you’ve passed your SQE1 course or have agreed an exemption with the SRA you can move straight onto studying for the SQE2. Simply fill out our enrolment form to get started.

Key features

Skills lectures

BARBRI SQE2 Prep has the best faculty in exam preparation, consisting of experienced solicitors and barristers qualified in England and Wales, who will explain how to master the skills required to succeed in SQE2. The Skills Explanations, available as interview-style lectures, are wholly examination-driven, and are carefully crafted to fully interpret the exam criteria and give you tips in how to succeed. 


BARBRI will be providing you with a short workbook to supplement the skills explanations.

Scaffolding activities

These are guided interactive learning activities which will take the knowledge you have gained watching the Skills Explanations and reading the Workbook and apply it to an exam style scenario. Each activity breaks down the different steps you’ll need to master each skill assessed in SQE2.


With our self-practice activities, you get the opportunity to have a go at doing a whole exam question yourself. You’ll receive instant access to self-assessment materials so you can confidently review your own work. You’ll find out how you’re doing, where you can improve, and you’ll even have the chance to mark your peers’ work and have them mark yours, too.

Practice Feedback

This is the most valuable asset on the SQE2 course. You have the opportunity to get individual personalised feedback from a BARBRI assessor in every skill assessed in SQE2 through Practice Feedback Activities.

Mock Exams

Before you sit SQE2, you’ll complete mock assessments and receive personal feedback from a BARBRI assessor in each skill and subject assessed in SQE2.

Tutor personalised feedback

The practice questions reflect the assessment style of the SQE2 exam which is split between oral and written assessments, covering multiple skills. You will practise these in exam conditions and receive personalised feedback for every skill to exam standard by experienced assessors. This is measured against the criteria as set out by Kaplan, the exam provider.
