Structure

To pass this level you’ll need to study five subjects, which are all mandatory. Four of the subjects are examined individually and there is also a synoptic assessment. You’ll take this towards the end of the level. It incorporates the final two units as well as drawing on all of the other subjects you’ve studied at this level.


Entry requirements

You should have either passed AAT Foundation (Level 2), or you may be eligible for relevant exemptions if you’ve been working in an intermediate accounts role before enrolling on this course, or have achieved relevant A Levels.

If you have a university degree in accountancy, or related, we recommend that you move straight onto ACCA, CIMA, or ACA.
