Will the Outcome of the EU Referendum (Brexit) Affect the July 2016 MCT Assessment?

The UK will hold a referendum on June 23, 2016, known as Brexit the country’s membership of the European Union. 

The SRA Outcome A1 requires candidates to demonstrate knowledge of the jurisdiction, authority and procedures of the legal institutions and professions that initiate, develop, interpret and apply the law of England and Wales and the European Union.

This has raised a question at to how the results of the referendum will potentially affect the syllabus of the upcoming July 2016 MCT assessment, as unless otherwise stated in advance candidates are assessed on the law in force at the time of the assessment.

To our request, Kaplan has therefore clarified that questions in the July 2016 MCT will test candidates on QLTS Outcome A as it stands, and the UK’s position in relation to the EU and EU law as it is before the June referendum has taken place.

Kaplan will not include questions in the July 2016 MCT which expect candidates to understand the implications or effect of a decision to withdraw from the EU in the 2016 referendum.

If there are questions in the MCT to which the answer would be different depending on whether the UK is going to remain a member of the EU or not, candidates are expected to give the answer which is correct prior to the referendum taking place.

Check our MCT course packages and ensure you are well prepared for the assessment.
