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.

info

If you are starting at this level (Level 3), we advise that you enrol onto the Kaplan Bookkeeping course, as there is an assumption at this level that you have a good knowledge of Double Entry Bookkeeping.

warning

Please be aware, you can only buy up to four subjects in a six month period.

Syllabus

You’ll learn complex accounting techniques including maintaining cost accounting records and the preparation of reports and returns. You’ll master a number of accounting disciplines including financial processes, advanced bookkeeping, final accounts and ethical practices for accountants.
