Good luck to all EQE 2023 candidates - main exam and Pre-Exam!


We wish all candidates that will sit one or more EQE papers this and/or next week good luck / bonne chance / gute Fahrt!

Our EQE blogs will be open for your comments and opinions w.r.t. the ABand D main exam and the Pre-Exam paper immediately after the respective exam. We will post our (provisional) answers to the various papers in separate blog posts shortly after we have received copies of the exam papers. To facilitate the discussions, we will also post copies of the papers as soon as possible after we received reasonably clean copies. 

Do not post any comments as to the merits of the answers of a certain exam paper/flow on the blogs while an exam/flow is still ongoing. Also, do not post the invigilator password or anything else that may be considered a breach of the exam regulations, instructions to the candidates, code of conducts, etc (see, e.g.,  EQE homepageEQE notices, EQE online website, MyEQE, and the emails from the EQE secretariat).

Getting well-prepared for EQE 2023 - opportunities for candidates to test their system and exam platform under exam conditions

REMINDER: This Thursday, and again mid February, candidates have the opportunity to test their system and exam platform under exam conditions (Main exam as well as Pre-Exam). 

It is strongly recommended, if not indispensable, to use those opportunities, and to do the test with the full system (computer, camera, microphone, internet connection) and at the location that you intend to use for the EQE itself.

Only these tests allow you to check the system under exam conditions, so including the invigilation/ proctoring/ supervision functionality. In the past, some candidates experiences some problems only with this full setup, e.g., due to some actions such as using Alt-Tab being considered as attempts to cheat, so it is important to not miss out on these opportunities!

Candidates are referred to the email they received from the EQE Secretariat mid December, which provided (for Pre-Exam as well as main exam candidates):

Dear candidate,

Please be informed that the instructions to candidates for the conduct of the EQE 2023 are now available on the EQE website.

Please also note that you will be able to test your computer equipment and settings on the following dates:

19 January 2023 at 9:30 – 10:30 and 14:00 – 15:00 CET and

15 February 2023 at 9:30 – 10:30 and 14:00 – 15:00 CET.

It is recommended to take advantage of these technical tests under examination conditions. We strongly advise you not to wait until the last moment to test in case you encounter problems.

Further information will follow in January 2023.

If you have not yet activated your WISEflow account, please urgently do so or inform us in case of problems.

Best regards / Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Sincères salutations
