Urgent Advice Needed

Hello i am stuck with a huge decision!

I have recently finished a placement year after studying Accountancy & Finance at university and have failed two modules meaning i can not continue to my final year. I am now trying to decide whether to do AAT at level 3 or jump into CIMA certificate level. If i do AAT from level 3 i know it will take two years but would then be exempt from the CIMA certificate level or would it be best to just do the certificate level and move onto the next stage after that?

Can anyone please give me any advice on what would be the best route to take?

Thankyou for your help.

    I would recommend that you complete the aat qualification and have the certificates to show for it.

    I agree with Sebastian - finish what you have started first :001_smile:

    I agree with the previous two. Complete AAT and then whatever happens you have a qualification. Will take the presure off doing CIMA!

    Another agreement here! Finish AAT first because then you have a recognised qualification regardless of what you study in the future!

    Good luck :)
