AAT e-assessment exams


AAT  assessments are available within 2 qualification streams; one for aspiring bookkeepers the other for trainee accountants.  Both streams have assessments across 3 levels, Award (level 1), Foundation (level 2) and Advanced (Level 3).  In addition, accounting students are also able to take the Professional Diploma at Level 4. 

Some assessments are available for both streams of students and may form part of more than one qualification.

For example, the Bookkeeping Transactions assessment forms part of 3 different qualifications, AAT Foundation Certificate in Accounting (BTRN1),  AAT Foundation Diploma in Accounting and Business (BTRN2), and AAT Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping (BTRN3).

The AAT unit code (shown in brackets in the example above)  ensures you are booked onto the right exam.  Please review your AAT student page to confirm which qualification you are registered to study and ensure you book the right version of your exam.

The AAT synoptic exams are only available on specific weeks within the calendar year. It is your responsibility as a synoptic exam candidate to check the AAT website and ensure your synoptic exam is available on your chosen date.  

Related Prior Learning (RPL) exemptions

You may not have to take all the necessary AAT assessments to gain a specific qualification  if you can prove you have a previous  relevant qualification from another external awarding body sufficient to gain exemption for a particular exam.​

If you have already studied qualification units featuring the same content, you can apply for RPL exemption, and fast track to your desired AAT qualification.
