Hi. I've passed my Int. AAT, but i've been chatting to some friends at work, who mentioned CAT as an alternative. I remember my college tutor during my HNC a few years back being quite keen on it too - anyone any ideas what the difference is? Seems to be more related to ACCA, but not sure why that's any different from AAT.
Could i switch from one to the other, ifi wanted to? i assume i'd have exemptions.

    I wouldn't bother switching, CAT is ACCA's version of AAT and it is not as well recognised.

    You get the same exemptions whichever one you choose should you go on to ACCA.

    Thank you. is that why its cheaper to study, being not so well recognised?
    You've been a good help.
