So after waiting 5 weeks and 4 days (longest of any exams) I got my business tax result on Friday - competent!!

So that's me all done without failing any exams!

So happy!

    Probably CIMA but need to find a job that will support me as I can't afford it on my own. Working as a temp at the mo but have a job interview this afternoon for a permanent role as a cost accountant.

    I'm just about to start level 4. Would you mind telling me if I can take exams whilst still waiting for other exam results. I want to get this level done by the new year and with a 5 week wait on exam results it will take longer than that if you have to wait around for results before moving on...

    Congratulations as well :)

    Hello Sam

    You can sit any exam at Level 4 whilst waiting for results as long as it is not an exam you have already sat and are currently awaiting the results for.

    Good luck with Level 4.

    I'm starting with budgeting. I'm also going to make a start on the ICAS projects I've heard it can take a while to complete. For all the other units, I'm aiming to do one exam a month..

    Have you got any tips for this level?

    Hi,

    I am just about to start level 4. How long would you say it takes to complete if doing it via distance learning?

    Thanks

    I think there are many factors you need to consider, for example, do you work either full time/part time, what other commitments do you have, how many hours can you spare.

    You also need to consider you ability to teach yourself the syllabus and understand it before sitting the exams. Are you planning to study more than one module at a time.

    I think you could possibly study Level 4 over 4-8 months depending how long you spend on ICAS which you will need a training provider for and allowing the 'up to 6 weeks' wait for exam results.

    As a rough guide I have listed how long I spent on level 4 below:-

    Financial Statements - 6 weeks
    Budgeting - 3 weeks
    Financial Performance - 4 weeks
    Personal Tax - 3 weeks
    Business Tax - 4 weeks
    ICAS (The Project) - 12 weeks

    The above may or may not seem like a lot/little to some - however I worked full time and the rest of my spare time, evenings and weekends were spent studying... and it paid off with first time passes in all modules.

    I'm sure there will be other responses to your question as we all study differently and have different ideas/suggestions etc.

    Good luck and enjoy level 4.

    Thanks for the response JC.

    I work full time and would be aiming to do between 15-20 hours a week study.

    I have just finished level three, which took me about 5-6 months studying about 5 hours a week

    Looking forward to finishing the AAT and moving onto the next stage.
