What is the QLTS?

The Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme (QLTS) helps you become a Solicitor of England and Wales if you are already a qualified lawyer in one of the jurisdictions recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). You can also take this route if you are a qualified Barrister in England and Wales and have completed your pupillage.

The QLTS Exam

The QLTS Exam has two stages:

  • QLTS MCT – Multiple Choice Test
  • QLTS OSCE – Objective Structured Clinical Examination

Candidates must pass the MCT first before attempting the OSCE.

The QLTS MCT assessments are rigorous, testing legal knowledge in order to accurately advise a range of parties.

Please visit the Kaplan website to try a Sample of 30 MCT questions.

In the QLTS OSCE exams your practical legal and procedural knowledge, as well as a range of skills, will be assessed against marking criteria and outcomes specified by the SRA. We have the legal expertise and educational experience to guide and focus your studies towards meeting those criteria and outcomes and achieving a pass first time.

Please visit the Kaplan website for further details about the QLTS assessments and how to enrol for them.


Candidates for the QLTS must already be qualified lawyers in a jurisdiction recognised by the SRA.  You can check the eligibility of your own jurisdiction on the SRA website:


The SRA test your core knowledge and understanding of the ‘Day One Outcomes’.  To meet the Outcomes, you must demonstrate that you have relevant knowledge in the Law and Practice of England and Wales.  Please take a look.


Your Legal Research skills will be tested in the OSCE using Lexis Library and Westlaw.  If you do not already have access to these Legal Databases, please speak to your personal tutor for advice.
