    The AAT exams do not have set pass marks - they do vary each year, as tramanhduong said. You will not get a percentage result either - simply pass or fail.

    In the AAT mag there was an article about how they are looking into updating the marking, so your results are more clear, however I don't think we will be getting percentages/marks any time soon.

    You are marked by the amount of errors you make. I think you are allowed 2 major errors and a small error . If the majority is correct , you pass. Hope this helps

    I heard about 80% for Foundation, 65-80% Intermediate and 55-65% Technician - this obviously changes year on year but can be used as a ball park guide - important to relaise you must be able to apply your knowledge to scenarios - letters, memos etc and not just balance accounts. You do get marks for heading memos, reports, emails and letters properly so make sure you avail yourself of these easy marks - they can be the difference between competent or not-competent.

    Good luck, you'll be fine I am sure.
