Frequently Asked Questions
- Who is behind Pass OLQE?
We are full time lawyers who have suffered through the OLQE exams ourselves and therefore wanted to make available a resource which would hopefully be useful for time constrained lawyers preparing and studying for the exams. Because we are full time lawyers doing this as a side project, sometimes we may not be able to respond to your queries as quickly as we would like. If that happens, know that its because we are also pulling late nights and working on a sleep deficit and not because we are ignoring your queries. During the OLQE off season, we don't monitor the website as closely and therefore our responses may be delayed. However during the OLQE peak period (June - Nov) we aim to respond to all queries within a 1-2 day period. We ask that you be patient with us and we will respond to your queries as soon as possible.
- Are the materials up to date?
We update the materials every year for changes in the law (if any) for each of the topics. However, we recognise that we are not perfect and we would be delighted if you let us know of any additional updates which you think we may have missed or you spot any typos, grammatical mistakes or anything else which you think could be changed to improve the notes.
- Can I pass the exams just by looking at the exam notes?
The exam notes are intended to provide a succinct summary of the course materials organised in a manner that is ready for use in an exam answer. However, they assume that you have studied the course materials in detail and already understand the key cases and legal principles referenced.
- How many years of suggested exam answers are available?
Currently we have suggested exam answers for the following years in each of the following subjects:
Conveyancing - 2006 - 2015 (inclusive)
Civil & Criminal Procedure - 2006 - 2015 (inclusive)
Commercial - 2006 - 2014 (inclusive)
Ethics and Accounts - 2007 - 2014 (inclusive)
Basic Law - We are currently working on some suggested solutions for this subject
We are working to include suggested exam answers for the 2015, 2016 and 2017 exams and will load these up progressively as these are prepared. All members who have subscribed for the relevant subject will have access to the additional materials once they are loaded onto the members site irrespective of when you subscribed to the website.
- Do you provide suggested exam answers for every question in the past exams?
We approach the exams in the same manner as if we were taking the exams on exam day. For this reason, you will find that the suggested exam solutions include suggested solutions for 4 out of the 5 questions in each year's exam.
- Are there any discounts?
The various packages on the website represent the total offerings we have. We have put a lot of thought into the price for each of the packages and have tried to price the materials as competitively as possible including discounts for purchases of multiple notes, exam solutions and/or different subjects.
- How will I receive access to the materials once I've paid?
Once you have purchased your membership, you will receive an email (to the email you signed up with) which will include your username and password. You will need to use these login details to log into the membership section of the website to access the subjects which you have subscribed for. As you may not have received an email from us in the past, please also remember to check your 'junk' email folder as your email provider may accidentally sort us into a folder other than your inbox. If you purchase additional subjects after your initial subscription, these additional subjects will appear and be accessible once you log into the members site with the same login.
However, we recognise that sometimes technology is not perfect, and if you are still having difficulties accessing the materials after doing the above, please email us and we will reset your login details and provide you with a new login.
- How long does the membership last for?
The price quoted is intended to be for a 1 year subscription.
