SQE2 Results Release – Key Dates and How to Access

Candidates will receive an email notification with a link to access their results. This process is straightforward, designed to give you quick and easy access to your performance overview.

Future SQE2 Results Dates

Looking ahead, the SRA has scheduled more sittings for the SQE2 in July and October 2024. Staying informed about these dates is crucial for your planning and preparation.

Next Steps After Receiving Your SQE2 Results

Passing the SQE2

Congratulations on passing! The next step is to apply for admission. The SRA's website offers comprehensive information on what you need to do before applying, ensuring you meet all the necessary criteria.

Resitting SQE2

If you need to resit the SQE2, particularly aiming for the April sitting, it's important to book your spot via your candidate account as soon as possible. The booking window will be paused on 5 March, so early booking is advisable. A queuing system may be implemented to ensure fair access, providing you with an approximate waiting time.

Preparing for Your SQE2 Resit

Reasonable Adjustments

Should you require reasonable adjustments, contacting the Equality & Quality Team at your earliest convenience is vital. This ensures a seat is reserved for you, and all necessary adjustments are made.

Pre-Booking Requirements

Completing the pre-booking steps is a prerequisite for any assessment booking. Failure to complete these steps could delay your ability to book your resit.

Test Centres for SQE2 Oral Assessments

The booking page will list all available test centres for the oral assessments, allowing you to choose the most convenient location.

Looking Ahead – Further SQE2 Sittings in 2024

Further SQE2 sittings are scheduled for July and October 2024. Early preparation and booking are essential, as spots are limited and demand is high.
