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.

    AAT is wayy more recognised, id stick with that if i were you...

    i want to go on to do acca, and when went for my job interview at bentley |& jennison i told them what i intend to do in the future.

    the guy who interviewed me advised that i go on to do ACA , as ive done AAt he said il get more exemptions for aca
