PQ says New Qualification looks better

jewels.pjewels.p Font Of All KnowledgeRegistered Posts: 1,774
I have just been reading the July issue of PQ Magazine and at the very end of the article on Page 22 re. the new revised AAT Qualification it says that "the new qualification looks better than the old one"

What does this mean? I have worked hard for this qualification and am at Technician Level which I will hopefully complete in December. Does it mean that those of us who have done it the old way will have an outdated qualification that looks rubbish compared to the new one?

    I must admit I have been wondering which will look better to employers in a few years time when I potentially wish to move on from where I am now.

    Haven't come to any decision but have been thinking about it!

    I cant see it making a bit off difference my manager sat her AAT exams over 10 years ago and is also an FMAAT but that wouldnt make the pass any different as she did sit it so long ago

    Did you see the article about the CIMA P2 sitters being up in arms about NPV being included in the exam, can't believe it would be the first time they've come across it, can you?

    That's not as bad as the great whinge-fest that happened here a few years ago when students were expected to know that there were 1000 grams to a kilogram in a PCR exam.

    I haven't seen the article about CIMA P2, where was that posted if I may ask?

    oh it was hilarious in one of the exams we had to work out something and it was in kg's so of course afterwards, there was a huge debate on why and how we should know it, it was amazing - i will try and find the link but i think it was on the old forum.
