The 125 OSCE Mock will enable candidates to test confidently and achieve a higher score on the OSCE assessment
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 4 October 2016
QLTS School, the premier QLTS training provider to individual lawyers and the world’s top law firms, today announced the launch of a new and innovative tool to help non-UK lawyers prepare for the OSCE element of the QLTS assessments: 125 OSCE Mock Exams.
The 125 OSCE Mock Exams are accompanied with suggested solutions for self-assessment and cover all legal practice areas and skills tested on the OSCE assessment. The questions provide ample opportunity for candidates to deepen their legal knowledge and hone their practical skills.
Points to note or proposed submissions for each mock enable candidates to understand what is required of them by the assessor and identify areas of development in advance of their practice mock stations with their QLTS tutor.
The scenarios cover a wide spectrum of the OSCE syllabus, and often feature supporting documents such as shareholders’ agreements, statements of claim, wills, lease extracts and defence statements. The interviewing skills exercises include instructions for both interviewer and interviewee to enable roleplay for a more realistic assessment environment, together with scripts which simulate a real interview and oral presentation.
The 125 OSCE Mock Exams are available on QLTS School’s proprietary OSCE Online Training System, together with practice areas summaries, a course guide booklet, a series of legal research videos, and QLTS Skills Online – with over 60 interactive exercises complemented by video and audio material and a 100-page book. QLTS School’s students also work with a personal tutor who customises their study plan and provides personal feedback on their mock practice questions based on the SRA marking criteria.

Nir Chanoch, Managing Director of QLTS School, commented: “We are very pleased with the new addition to our OSCE course, which significantly enhances the courses and services we offer to foreign lawyers taking the QLTS assessments. Each mock exam has been designed from the ground up exclusively for QLTS School and specifically to address each one of the legal practice areas skill sets forming the QLTS OSCE syllabus. Ultimately, the 125 OSCE Mock will enable candidates to test confidently and achieve a higher score on the OSCE assessment.”
About the QLTS
The Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme (QLTS) is the official transfer scheme of the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), the regulatory body of the Law Society of England and Wales, for internationally qualified lawyers seeking admission as English solicitors.
The QLTS assessments comprise two elements – multiple choice test (commonly known as the MCT) and practical assessment – Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). Lawyers who pass the MCT assessment can proceed to take the practical assessment, following successful completion they become eligible to qualify as English solicitors. There is experience requirement or training to complete under the QLTS.
Since the introduction of the QLTS assessments in 2010, thousands of lawyers from all over the world, including common and civil law jurisdictions, such as the US, Australia, South Africa, European Union countries, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Brazil, Russia, Turkey, have been talking advantage of the programme and applied to become dual-qualified English solicitors.
More information about the QLTS is available on QLTS School’s website.
