QLTS success story – David

Hi all I’m extremely happy to repost here another QLTS success story.

For everyone’s benefit, read below David’s recent comment on how he managed to pass the MCT with an overall 73% mark. This will be particularly helpful to US and other Common Law qualified solicitors.

I’m glad that David passed the MCT, and I’m glad that he made using the books suggested here.

Read David’s tips for a boost in your confidence, and if you have additional story to share, leave a comment or get in touch!

“I just wanted to say thanks for posting these resources. I used the Oxford Concentrate books and review questions to prepare for the February 2017 MCT and got the email that I had passed last Friday.

My basic approach was to print out the list of Day One Outcomes A1-A11 from the Kaplan website and to then prioritize them based on my own (perceived) familiarity with them.

I am an attorney in the States, so contracts and torts were at the bottom of the list, while English Constitutional Law, EU Law, and Human Rights Law were at the top.

I read the Concentrate books for English Legal System, Constitutional Law, and EU Law very closely and prepared good outlines.

I was perhaps a little over-prepared for the constitutional law topics and I was definitely over-prepared on EU law.

I had about the right level of preparation on everything else, although I should note (for the benefit of any other American lawyers reading this) the Brits have changed the rules of property quite a bit and a lot of the “old common law” stuff you learned in law school (like the rule against perpetuities) is out the window.

On a related note, the contract and tort law stuff will be pretty familiar, but be sure to learn the names of the key Acts (like Sale of Goods Act 1979) and also be sure to have overview knowledge of key cases like Tremain v Pike (the rat disease/duty/negligence case).

I got 73% overall.”

Hi! My name is Marco and I’m the guy behind PasstheQlts. As you would imagine, I graduated in Law in Italy and qualified as a solicitor in Italy and Spain. I was working in house for a retail company for the last few years in Italy, but then decided I needed a change of perspective, culture, opportunities and so on. And London was the answer to my internal struggle! I moved to London and now it’s time to set the next steps in my career. To be totally honest I knew that the only logical step, unless you are looking for a career change (yes, but what?), if you want to practice Law in the UK, is what this blog is about: to pass the QLTS Exam, the Qualified Transfer Scheme! Really, I am just a guy who has the goal to pass the QLTS Exam to build a professional career in Law in London. I will share my study plan with you, read all the possible guides, interview successful candidates and try to post everything online. Of course any help, question, comment or suggestion from you will be greatly appreciated! Best of luck! Cheers! M

    Being a fellow US lawyer I have been wondering… would you mind selling your MCT outlines?

    Alas, I have very limited amount of time to study so relying on somebody else’s outlines is the only thing I can do…
