epi Tutorial

The epi Tutorial is an EQE training event that provide candidates with the opportunity to sit the A/B/C/D papers privately, to send the papers to an experienced epi Tutor assigned to them and to have their individual papers reviewed and discussed.

Get your individual feedback on papers A/B/C/D whenever you need it during your preparation for the EQE.

  • Sign up for a tutorial whenever you want
  • Decide which paper you want to prepare
  • Arrange individually with your tutor:
     - the due date when you need to send your prepared paper to your tutor
     - the date when you will discuss the result of your individual paper with your tutor
  • Discuss the result of your paper with your tutor
     - via video conference
     - via personal meeting
     - via email

Candidates decide which kind of papers (A, B, C and/or D) they want to sit. Depending on the result, candidates have the opportunity together with their tutor to decide whether they want to work another volume of the same paper and if necessary even to work a second volume.

The tutorial fee for the selected paper (A, B, C or D) covers a maximum of two different years (for example, you can write Paper A 2018 and 2019 etc.): 

  • fee for epi Students EUR 200 per selected paper 
  • fee for non-epi Students EUR 400 per selected paper

The registration is available here.

Mock e-EQE (Mock 2)

In preparation for the European Qualifying Examination (EQE), epi offers the possibility to sit mock exams. This enables candidates to write the main examination papers (A, B, C and D) under real examination conditions.

For this reason epi, with the assistance of qualified Professional Education Committee (PEC) members and epi tutors, has prepared own main examination papers. These papers are available in all three official languages. The epi mock e-EQE (Mock 2) will be conducted online in the same system the EPO uses for the real exam. For the e-EQE, the examination platform WISEFlow (europe.wiseflow.net) with a LockDown browser will be used. 

There will be no registration for the epi mock e-EQE (Mock 2). Every registered EQE Candidate should have received access to the EPO system.

epi will make available to all registered participants of the mock e-EQE videos (in English only) in which epi tutors will explain the model solution posted on epi-learning.org and access to live Q&A sessions (also in English only) with epi tutors during the second week of February 2021. All EQE candidates can register for this package (video + Q&A session).   
Each of the live Q&A sessions will be limited to 100 participants. It will also be possible to post questions anonymously on an epi forum after viewing the video(s) for which you have registered as well as after the live Q & A sessions have taken place.  

The epi forum will open on 1st February 2021 to allow time for all questions to be answered by epi tutors before the e-EQE the following week.

Registration fee per exam paper is as follows:
60 EUR for epi students
80 EUR for non-epi students

The registration for the video and Q&A sessions will be open soon.
