Change syllabus?

I am currently on the 2010 Syllabus having completed level 2 and I have only completed spreadsheet software in level 3, I have taken around a 8 month break to complete a separate course from work and I am now looking to carry on with the AAT course.

I personally do not think I could complete the whole of level 3 before Dec 2014 (working 6 days a week takes it toll)
Do you think I should transfer to the 2013 Syllabus and carry on from there?
Would I need to sit a transitional exam?
Lastly, If I transferred to 2013 syllabus, what order of exams would you recommend?

    You should be able to carry your spreadsheet forward to AQ2013 standards. As for which order: 1) ACPR, 2) FSTP, 3) CSTR, 4) ITAX and 5) PETH (Save the worst til last!)

    One possible consideration to moving to 2013 is from 2010 is that the CBA's are in one section not two therefore 70% of the whole paper not 70% of each section which can be a downfall if you have an awful question in one section. A further consideration is that the weighting for each question is given. This DOES NOT mean that the paper is any easier - you still need to know your stuff but possibly a more level playing field as you know where the marks are.
