When you first decide to take the QLTS assessments and dual-qualify as an English solicitor, you know what is generally involved – such as the MCT (multiple choice questions), the OSCE (practical legal assessments) and the areas of law and skills covered.
But when you start to look at the specifics of preparation – the logistics, time commitment and study schedule – several questions inevitably arise that will underpin your entire preparation effort:
- How long does it take to prepare for the QLTS assessments?
- How much time should I allow for study each day/week?
- How can I get a structured study plan and the necessary study tools?
- How can I be confident that what I am studying is really what is needed to pass?
