    about 6 weeks. I hate it too, its hard to move on to another subject until the results come in just incase it needs to be re-done!

    Exactly, same here too, i took my PART 2- Credit Management about 3 weeks now and still no result.
    currently working on FNST & BGT. bring back the old level 3 time where you finish an exam and get your result straight after.

    cheers

    It took 4 weeks to the day for me to get my budgeting results - perhaps yours will be any day soon....

    Good luck to all you serial SOA checkers !

    I do hope so Uknitty, the 6 week wait really kills me and i am checking everyday!!!! Was that recently you received your results? I have got my financial statements exam 28th Nov so it would be nice to have my result before then but not looking likely!!

    I took my FS on 28th and still nothing! I feel frustrated waiting for it! Aaghh!!
  • AliciaAlicia Feels At Home Posts: 40Registered
    Also, does anyone know if you receive an email to say that your results are in?xx
  • Becky VBecky V Trusted Regular Posts: 374Registered
    I havent received an email before when i have set an exam but i understand some people have on here, think its very random!! Hows your FS exam i have got mine monday!!! x
  • AliciaAlicia Feels At Home Posts: 40Registered
    It was okay really, what I expected but then I still doubt how I have done! And the computer crashed on 1 question so I had to do one of them twice but it wasn't too much of a drama! I Revised lots of practice papers, old and new standards so I felt quite prepared! Good luck for Monday! Let me know how it goes. X

    Hi Alicia, was there anything in your exam about th conceptual framework for financial reporting as i have just had an email from my tutor and he said that the exam hasnt changed to the new standars yet, but im sure i have read on here that some have sat the exam with this in!!!Help im confused!!!!!
  • uknittyuknitty Experienced Mentor Posts: 591Registered
    Becky there will almost certainly be a question on the framework in question 2

    The concepts are exactly the same, but some of the names for things are slightly different - nothing too much to worry about.

    Hi Becky

    I am certain I was assessed on the framework in section 2. It wasn't a lengthy question but concerned the 4 principal qualitative characteristics: understandability, relevance, reliability, comparability.

    I hope this makes sense? X
  • Becky VBecky V Trusted Regular Posts: 374Registered
    The ones we have been taught is the new standards, which means there are 2 fundamental qualitative charcteristics - relevance and faithful representation or 4 enhancing qualitative characteristics - comparibility, verifiabiltity, timeliness and understandability!

    Or is it the ones Alicia has mentioned?! My tutor says on the website the new satandards wont be tested until January 2012?
  • AliciaAlicia Feels At Home Posts: 40Registered
    I haven't even seen these changes to the framework! Really hoping they haven't changed otherwise Ive answer part of section 2 incorrectly! :s aargh! X
  • uknittyuknitty Experienced Mentor Posts: 591Registered
    I'm pretty sure the ones that Becky studied are the ones that are now being examined.

    I wouldn't wory too much because this question is marked by an examiner - so if you use either version of the characteristics but give full and correct answers then I am sure they would mark that as competent. No one would be cruel enough to mark an otherwise comptent paper as a fail.
  • AliciaAlicia Feels At Home Posts: 40Registered
    Let's hope so! Thanks! X

    Hi Alicia, well i got a question on the old standards framework, so not impressed, not sure what is going on with AAT!!! So your question you will probably be fine with! Now for the long wait!!
  • Becky VBecky V Trusted Regular Posts: 374Registered
    I have received my results today and have PASSED my business tax exam!!!!!!!
  • uknittyuknitty Experienced Mentor Posts: 591Registered
    Congratulations on the Business Tax result !

    When I started reading your post I thought you were going to say you had your FNST results... I thought "wow - that was quick !"

    Are you going to contact AAT with reference to the Framework ? I agree that there has not been enough clarity/
    communication about which standards will be examined and when that starts from.

    If you got a question on the old sylabus then I would say that they would have to assume that you are entitled to full marks for that question, as the question should not really have been asked.

    That is what happened with the GCSE confusion earlier this year (did you hear about the maths question that was impossible to answer because one of the required pieces of information was missing ?) - all students were awarded the full marks for that particular question.
  • AliciaAlicia Feels At Home Posts: 40Registered
    Yay! Well done! I've passed FNST too! I'm sure you will have done better than u think! Glass of vino to celebrate I think! :) xx

    People may already know, but I thought I would post it anyway. You can now get some kind of feedback from failed CBA's. I emailed the AAT asking what information you get if you appeal. They said they cannot give you the questions & answers but can now give feedback to your tutor.




    I can confirm that AAT is unable to release any of the questions and answers from your assessment as these are pulled from a live bank of questions. All of the computer based tests (CBT’s) are created through a bank of questions; this means that students receive different questions at different sittings and to other students. Because of this you would not be able to see the assessment that you sat nor the answers.



    However, your training provider is now able to access free automatic feedback for individual students directly from AAT’s assessment management system. We recently added the metadata required to provide this feedback, so feedback is only available for CBTs scheduled after 1 October 2011. You will need to speak to your tutor to obtain a copy of the feedback for any of your eligible CBTs.
