How long will I need to wait before I can book my first AAT assessment?
We recommend that you aim to set aside at least 6/8 hours per week for your studies (on average – we know that other things crop up from time to time!). Anything less than this could find you have to do lots of recapping i.e. spending the first half hour or so going over what you studied in your last session! If you are able to commit to 6 – 8 hours per week, you should find yourself being able to book in for your first AAT assessment approximately 7 to 8 weeks after starting your course.
Can I sit all my AAT assessments at once?
You should study each unit in turn i.e. one at a time. Once you have finished studying for a unit, you will be able to sit the AAT assessment for it. After that, you will move on to the next unit, then sit the exam for it, and so on.
You will be able to sit AAT assessments whenever you like once you (and your Tutor if you opted for a tutor supported package) think you are ready to sit them.
Subject to availability at your chosen AAT assessment centre you may find that you have to provide a number of weeks’ prior notice, whereas others may only require a few days’ notice, so this is something to bear in mind, especially when booking in for your first exam.
Something else to take into account is the AAT Synoptic window for each AAT Level – during Synoptic windows, you may find that there is reduced availability (unless you are sitting the relevant synoptic exam yourself!)
