Below, we provide suggestions as to how to prepare for the EQE 2016 (Pre-Exam or main exam papers):

Courses Preparing for Pre-Exam 2016

[Pre-Exam banner]

If you will sit next year's Pre-Exam, we suggest our 8-day Basic Legal Training (leaflet), given in 3 blocks of 4, 2 and 2 days at our course venue in Eindhoven (NL) to provide you the Basic Legal background and practice for your pre-Exam preparation, which you can then develop further after you passed your Pre-Exam in 2016 using courses from our Main Exam training program and/or our Main Exam material for your main exam as from 2017. For the 8-day basic Legal Training, all material and tuition is provided in English.

The 8-day, 3-block Basic Legal course is (provisionally) scheduled twice:
  • a first course group starting in late March (20- 23 April, 18 - 19 June and 14 - 15 September) for pre-exam 2016 candidates that want to start studying early, and especially also for main exam 2016 candidates to complete the Basic Legal Course before enrolling in the main exam Methodology courses, and
  • a second course group starting in September (7 - 10 September, 5 - 6 November, 14 - 15 December) to allow pre-exam 2016 candidates to do a complete legal training starting only after summer, but still in time for the exam.
We also give the course as a Distance Learning course (leaflet) with bi-weekly interactive video tutorials

Also, the course can be given in-house if your organization has a sufficient number of candidates - please contact our course department for a quotation.

In autumn/ winter, we provide a 1-day Pre-Exam legal methodology course (leaflet) as well as a 2-day Pre-Exam claims analysis methodology course (leaflet). These two courses are/will be scheduled on subsequent days, so the courses can be combined into a 3-day Pre-Exam Practice course wherein the candidates learn how to apply the legal knowledge obtained in the Pre-Exam Legal / Basic Legal course in exam questions in Pre-Exam style.
The 3-day Pre-Exam Methodology course are (provisionally) scheduled in October-January in English at various locations thoughout Europe, et aussi en français à Paris, Lyon et Toulouse.

Courses Preparing for Main Exam 2016


If you passed the Pre-Exam, you will need to further expand your legal knowledge and your capabilities to apply the legal knowledge in complex cases (DI legal questions, DII legal advice) to such a degree that you can score at least 45 or 50 marks within 5 hours.

If you prepared really well for the Pre-Exam, and you can expect to have passed with 40 marks or more for the legal part (based on comparison with answers posted by, e.g., on our Pre-Exam blog), you can probably postpone your further study until May/June. We provide a 4-day Legal Refresher course at our course venue in Eindhoven and in Munich to kick-off your further D preparation.

If you passed the Pre-Exam but your Basic Legal knowledge was not really at such a level that you can step up the next level (legal score below 40) and get confidence that you will be at main D level in less than a year from now,  we also suggest that you participate in the 8-day Basic Legal Training, first course group starting in March (20- 23 April, 18 - 19 June and 14 - 15 September) at our course venue in Eindhoven (NL) to provide you the Basic Legal background and practice for your main exam preparation. Some details are given above.

If you failed the Pre-Exam (hopefully not!), we also suggest our 8-day Basic Legal Training (leaflet), given in 3 blocks of 4, 2 and 2 days at our course venue in Eindhoven (NL) to provide you the Basic Legal background and practice for your pre-Exam preparation. Some details are given above.

If you failed the D exam and want to resit the D paper in 2016, you probably need some further training as to Basic Legal knowledge (typically, if you scored below 15 for the DI-part), D-level legal knowledge (typically, if you scored below 25 for the DI-part), or EQE Exam Training (if you scored below 25 for the DI-part, and/or if you scored below 30 for the DII-part).


If you plan to sit any of the main exam papers in 2016, we offer:
    • an 8-day Basic Legal Training (leaflet) (in 3 blocks of 4, 2 and 2 days) at our course venue in Eindhoven (NL) to provide you the Basic Legal background and practice, which you can then develop further using courses from our Main Exam training program and/or our Main Exam material. For the 8-day basic Legal Training, all material and tuition is provided in English; a first course group is scheduled to start already late March (20- 23 April, 18 - 19 June and 14 - 15 September) and allows main exam 2015 candidates to complete the Basic Legal Course before enrolling in the main exam methodology courses, and
    • starting as from May with Advanced D Legal Training (in the Netherlands; in English); if you cannot participate in this training, do our new  4-day Legal Refresher course at our course venue in Eindhoven and in Munich to kick-off your further D preparation, and -preferably after our 3-day D methodology course- practice exam-style questions from the Main Exam Questions book.
    • Methodology Courses for all papers (ABand D) as from September in the Netherlands as well as at course locations all across Europe (English; for C and D: in English, German and French),
    • Guided Exam courses (ABand D) in December/January, in English and -for D also- German, and
    • our correction paper program for all papers  (ABand D) (in English and, for C and D, German);
  • be invited to check our Training Material (Q&A Books, Methodology Books, our Model Solutions) for the main exam papers, which can be ordered via our webshop.

More information and enrolment

An overview as well as the details of all courses can be found on our website under "Training".

Registration forms (Pre-Exammain exam papers and integrated courses in the Netherlands) and policy are provided on the website itself and in the brochures on the website.

If you enrol to a main exam course before having received your pre-exam results, but you unluckily failed the pre-exam and you inform us within one week after having received your pre-exam grade, you can defer your participation in the enrolled courses with a year, so you can follow the main exam course after resitting the pre-exam.

Hope to see you in one or more of our courses!
And hope you will not only study hard, but will also enjoy your preparation with us!

Appendix: Appetizer

As an appetizer and incentive to make you start studying early -- and to timely register for one of our courses --, we already provide a possible question for the Pre-Exam 2016:
