Tutorial fee for each paper (Pre-exam, A, B, C or D) contains that the selected paper can be written at a maximum of three different years (for example, you can write Paper A for three different years etc.):

fee for epi students EUR 180 per selected paper and for non-epi students EUR 360 per selected paper

Mock EQE(s)

The mock EQE(s) allow participants to attempt an EQE exam under exam conditions. The participants sit the various papers (Pre-Examination, A, B, C and D) in the same order as during the real exam and are given exactly the same time to sit the paper(s).

We would like to give EQE candidates the possibility to be more flexible in their preparation for the EQE. For this reason, epi offers the Mock EQE in three different cities at different times, see time schedule.
