exemptions in aat with previous qualifications/experience?

guaguanco Registered Posts: 1 New contributor ?
hi everyone,

i'm new to this forum and i'm looking into studying for aat. i almost hold a degree in economics from abroad (in that I emigrated before I finished my dissertation). do you know if this previous qualification/experience would exempt me from any provisional levels/modules of aat? also which level should i start on the aat? my degree did include various modules of accounting, but not directly related to the UK system.

thanks in advance for your replies

    Hi guanguanco,

    In terms of what level to start it much depends on your prior knowledge like credits and debits. There is a skills test at the following link that you can use to get an idea at what level might suit:

    Level 2 is pretty basic so you may be better off going straight to level 2.

    Anything else then please PM.

    I doubt you'll have any exemptions, but if you have good background knowledge of accountancy you can do level 3 and 4. However it would be best to gain some work experience aswell if you choose to skip level 2. You can complete level 2 within a few months so it really depends on your situation
