AAT AQ2016 Assessments 

AAT assessments are in the form of computer based exams ranging from 90 to 180 minutes duration.

Assessment/Invigilation Fees (paid directly the assessment centre of your choice):

  • At level 2 there are 4 unit assessments plus a synoptic
  • At level 3 there are 4 unit assessments plus a synoptic
  • At level 4 there are 5 unit assessments (or 6 if you do 3 optional papers) plus a synoptic

Unit assessments will still be available on demand, but synoptic assessments will be restricted to fixed assessment sittings.  Please click here for the scheduled dates for the synoptic sittings.

Each qualification will now be graded, this will be determined by the percentage you have achieved in each unit assessment and the synoptic assessment. Your final grade will either be Pass, Merit or Distinction.

There will be a synoptic assessment at the end of each level. A synoptic assessment is an exam that will cover the whole syllabus of a level.  Foundation synoptic assessments will be available most weeks, Advanced and Professional synoptic assessments will be available at fixed times throughout the year, as communicated by AAT. You can view the Synoptic schedule here 

If you are aged 16-18 and studying full time, the resit restrictions are  three resits per assessment. From 1st September 2018 this will change to two resits per assessment. Please contact your tutor with any queries you have regarding resits.
