You will have the opportunity to practise online one-to-one mock stations in client interviewing and advocacy, with an experienced tutor/actor, who will provide feedback based on Kaplan and the SRA Marking and Moderation Policy.
For example, after attending the live interviewing mock station, under the section “Client-focused”, your tutor may mark your mock as “C”, which means: “Marginal pass: on balance, just meets the competency requirements of the assessment”. In addition, the tutor will provide you with a detailed explanation and feedback for the reasons of your grading (law and skills are weighted equally).
The mock practice stations are designed to successfully prepare you for the SQE2 practical assessment and are regarded by many of our former QLTS candidates as the most effective way to genuinely assess your level of knowledge, professional skills and understanding of legal practice to a level that meets the SRA assessment requirements.
The mock stations will also help you turn your weaknesses into strength, improve your overall legal skills base and enhance your legal knowledge before you take the formal SQE exam.
During the SQE2 practical assessment itself, the six skills will be assessed in 16 simulated stations. The nature of the SQE exams means that feedback from a tutor is vital and cannot be obtained by simply self-assessing your performance, reading textbooks, watching videos, or even from peer feedback.
A demo mock station with tutor feedback on client interviewing is available in the following video: Mock practice stations with personal tutor feedback are offered to candidates who sign up for either the Advantage or Premium Courses.
