Good Afternoon Everyone,

    Aat 4

    Hi there,
    like you I have just finished level 3 and have today bought another Distance Learning with Kaplan for Level 4 just cos it was easier and included books, exam sitting etc. I got a discount cos of all the problems I had doing Level 3. I understood u can just call Kaplan/BPP and arrange a sitting at £50 each

    You go to MyAAT page.
    Click om Enter Exams.
    Then Tick Read terms and click Continue.
    Then click Enter.
    Then go to the OR box and select from a list of venues. You can call the AAT up they will help you find which one is the closest to you.
    You then select a venue.
    The next page you select the exam and pay.

    Isn't that only for paper based sittings? For the new QCF exams you need to contact the centre directly don't you?

    Yeah it is only for paper based exams and not the cbas. I have contacted most of the local centres within a 15 mile radius and also the Kaplan centre in Manchester which i am still currently registered at but have been told by all that they dont accept external students. Basically they want you to buy the full learning packages, i did this with Kaplan for the level 3 and not once rang up for assistance or used their services for help so the package is no good to me. seems to me their only interested in money money money which is dissappointing.

    Whereabouts are you? Could you get to Wrexham? I know a centre there that accepts external candidates although they don't have many places. What about BPP Liverpool or Manchester, they usually accept external candidates.

    Hi there
    when you go onto the AAT web site and enter exams you get a list of centres which accept external students.
    I have sat both of my exams at different locations to my home learning provider and my sister has sat her exams in manchester itself and also Bolton.
    You just pick the centres from the pull down list.
    Presumably you are a member ofthe AAT

    We're going round in circles now. The OP was asking about entering the new computer based exams, the process above only applies to paper based exams. The only way to enter a CBE is to phone the centres directly and book directly with them. AFAIK there is no definitive list available from the AAT, it's a case of phoning around and hope that you find somewhere.

    Are there any colleges nearby who offer AAT study, if so may be worth contacting them as we have had external candidates sitting exams when we take ours.

    Sorry thought I'd read it was paper based exams that that OP was trying to sit.
    ooopsss
