SQE assessments: mitigating circumstances

5 April 2022

This free webinar tells you the options available to candidates whose performance in SQE assessments is negatively impacted by particular circumstances – commonly known as mitigating or extenuating circumstances.

It will provide an overview of:

  • the mitigating circumstances and ‘Fit to Sit’ policies, which includes candidate illnesses or other personal circumstances beyond their control, mistakes or irregularities in the assessment and any evidence of bias
  • the application form and possible outcomes. 

The webinar will be relevant to anyone sitting the SQE assessments and training providers.
