About AAT Level 3 Course

AAT level 3 is a great level in the AAT accounting qualification because it builds on the knowledge you have learnt at level 2, and sets you up for level 4.

A lot of students worry that level 3 is going to be a big step up from level 2 and therefore a harder level to study. However, the knowledge built from your level 2 studies will give you a great kick start towards the Advanced Diploma in Accounting qualification.

AAT level 3 is made up of 6 units:

  • Advanced bookkeeping
  • Final accounts preparation
  • Management account costing
  • Advanced level synoptic
  • Indirect tax
  • Spreadsheets

We advise learn each unit, one at a time and sit an exam at the end of each unit, before moving on to the next unit.
