MCT assessment to be offered abroad

Excellent news for lawyers taking the QLTS: The SRA announced today that foreign lawyers taking the MCT assessments will be allowed to take the exam abroad, without leaving their home country.

Previously, everyone taking that part of the QLTS has had to travel to London to do the assessment.

The assessment provider, Kaplan QLTS, will partner with specialist provider Pearson to run the computer-based MCTs and will increase the price of the test from £500 to £565 to cover the cost of the new format of the assessment.

The online MCT will be offered in several countries overseas and offered only through Pearson test centres to prevent fraud or cheating.

The SRA said the change will help to eliminate discrimination against foreign lawyers by removing geographical barriers to completing the QLTS. It is expected the increased cost will be offset by savings in travel costs of coming to London, with more foreign lawyers likely to attempt the test next year.
