For the best chance of success, we would advise aspiring learners to have a high level of proficiency in English and Maths. AAT recommends that students use AAT Skills Check to ensure that they are ready to start on a particular qualification.

AAT Student Membership

As a professional body and as part of your studies, you will need to be a student member of the AAT. You can complete this quickly and easily with AAT by clicking here.

If you have been declared bankrupt, entered into an arrangement with creditors, the subject of a County Court Judgement (CCJ), or any criminal convictions or civil sanction, you will need to provide details about the circumstances when you register.

Answering ‘yes’ to one or more of these declarations while registering isn’t necessarily a bar to AAT membership but AAT must consider the suitability of the applicant to ensure that, as a member of AAT, the person will maintain public confidence in the accountancy profession.

You will have access to the course for 12 months only, after which, you can purchase extensions.

When studying an AAT qualification, your knowledge and skills will be tested via computer-based assessments (CBAs). These are administered by AAT training providers or assessment centres and run entirely on PCs or laptops.

Computer-based assessments 

AAT’s computer-based assessments are marked one of three ways:

Wholly computer marked, and so results will be available automatically

Partially computer marked and partially human marked, and so results will be available within six weeks

Wholly human marked, and so results will be available within six weeks

When are you assessed?

You will sit assessments when you are ready, as agreed with your training provider. You will need to check with your training provider as to the availability and schedule for completing your assessments.

In September 2016 AAT introduced a new type of assessment - synoptic assessments. Synoptic assessments will test your understanding of connections between the different topics covered across the qualification. Synoptic assessments are sat towards the end of the qualification and are taken at specific times of the year.


Computer-based exams are taken under invigilated conditions at an AAT approved external exam centre. You will discuss this further with your dedicated tutor during your studies, but unit computer-based exams cost £70-£80.


Upon successful completion of this course you will be awarded:

The AAT Foundation Certificate in Accounting Level 2 (Qualification Number: 601/6552/2)

The AAT Advanced Diploma in Accounting Level 3 (Qualification Number: 601/6554/6)
