On Tuesday 13th May, the AAT announced that they would be able to offer some assessments using remote proctoring technology. We were delighted to hear this news and are looking forward to helping our students prepare for these assessments.
“It’s fantastic to hear this news from the AAT. This move forward will maintain the high level of confidence that the accountancy profession has in the AAT as a qualification that can continue to work for them regardless of the circumstances. Well done to Mark Farrar and all at the AAT for the hard work I know has been put in to make this a reality.”
Gareth John, Director
AAT Students should by now have received an email explaining the news in more detail. However, we have summarised the key points below:
AAT REMOTE ASSESSMENTS
- The AAT will start delivering remote invigilation in August allowing students to sit assessments for certain papers at home. Other papers to follow.
- Exact dates for remote assessments are to be finalised.
- Level 2 students who have only their Synoptic Assessment to complete will be awarded an estimated grade on the 13th August.
- Training Providers with students who are eligible for estimated grades will be contacted shortly.
- The AAT continues to review all of its assessments in relation to remote examinations. In August the following assessments will be available:

- The AAT will also continue to review when centre-based assessments can resume, based on government guidance.
“This is great news for students, as I know many are really keen to get their next exam passed, so they can qualify and get the very real benefits that the AAT qualification brings”
