    I'm checking My AAT all the time (as if the results are going to come in when the office is closed - but hey, it makes me feel better !)

    AAT said on the FB page that the results will all still be in inside the 6 week window even though there have been bank holidays - so we should both find out how we have done in a little over a week...

    I know how hard you have worked for this exam, so I really hope you get good news :)

    Thanks Uknitty, yes i seen the message on the fb page. Someone on there received their results within 4 weeks and im still waiting for mine nearly 5 weeks, the results come out some random it should be the same for everyone!!What exam are you waiting for?

    FNPF for me. I handled my time badly and didn't give a good answer to the written task in section 2 - so it could be bad news for me....

    Its difficult waiting for results, but in a way we are lucky cause the old paper based exams used to take even longer ! I think I got used to getting instant results at level 2 and 3 and it has spoiled me :D

    I know I have asked this in the past but what do you two have left in terms of level 4 exams?

    I've just got financial performance and the project left, then its ATT for me.

    I ask the question because I'm just procrastinating during my financial performance revision, hahahaha

    I have budgeting and financial performance, will be so glad when its finished!!! Im not going on to study anything else afterwards well not yet anyway!! :)

    I forgot to say, I did my budgeting exam on 13/10/2011 and got my result on 03/11/2011 so it took around 21 days to get my result. I think 6 weeks is an absolute max/worst case scenerio.

    Just so you know, budgeting and financial performance are very similar so once you've finished doing budgeting you would have already done a lot of the work for financial performance.

    Are you going to become a MiP once you've done financial performance?

    My FNST exam results took 5 weeks and 5 days to be released. Friends of mine who have sat FNST have also had the same period of time waiting for results yet only 4 weeks for BGT, FNPF and B/PTX. Could it be down to the number of examiners marking the papers? I try not to think about it too much, easier said than done, I know!

    Hoping you both receive the good news you are patiently awaiting :)

    Budgeting took exactly 4 weeks for my results and FNST took 5 and a bit - so yes, I am inclined to agree that some papers have a quicker turnaround time than others.

    AAT have said that the 6 week timescale is a "worst case " scenario, and although waiting is soooooo difficult I actually think that 6 weeks is a very reasonable timescale.

    As far as what I have left - ICAS and an optional unit. Oh and possibly a FNPF resit :D

    I sat 4 exams in 4 days two weeks ago in what was possibly the worst week of my life. Really was not a fan of this set up and think I have possibly failed all of them. The waiting time is so painful I agree.

    How/why did you sit 4 exams in 4 days? Was this your choice/decision or set by your training provider?

    Hoping you receive good news in a few weeks.

    These are the dates my firm and training provider decided. If it had been my own decision I would have done one a week across December but I was not given this option, it was horrendous.

    Thanks for the luck I will need it.
