Reform of the European Qualifying Examination

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


In view of the cancellation of the European Qualifying Examination (EQE) in March 2020 and the uncertainty about the circumstances of the 2021 EQE, it is required to re-think the conditions of the examination as well as whether it can be held in another form if bringing larger groups of candidates together is still a health risk in March 2021. In this article a reform of the EQE is proposed with the aim of simplification. In addition, other manners to conduct the EQE are worked out to prevent that the 2021 EQE has to be cancelled again due to force majeure.
