Synoptic results

Hi,
I know the AAT are very unpredictable but i am due my synoptic results today. Just wondering if they have a set time they release them or can it be any point today?

Thanks in advance.

    Received mine just after 10, got 70% which is a bit disappointing as i was getting high 80s in the rest of the exams.

    For all my other exams in L4 they were released after 12, with the latest one coming in around 3.

    I haven't got mine yet, I sat the exam on the Thursday, maybe they release them in day order?

    I failed with 54%. I put in so much effort and averaged 80% with all other tests. So livid that AAT have completely let me down with this exam. I guess i'll start the complaints procedure now..

    Oh no what a disapointment for you Daniel. I still haven't received mine and sat it on the Tuesday so it mustnt be in day order.
    Fingers crossed youll pass next time.
    I have had a really tough year with a few fails so i am not expecting much!

    Well done to everyone whos passed so far!
    Keep going and try again to the people who haven't. Dont be disheartened, there's been times this year when ive wanted to give in but im still going.
    Hopefully my results will be on soon!

    Good luck to everyone,

    Back when I was waiting for my result a few months back, it didn't come through until about 4:30pm, so don't be alarmed if they seem to come through later than for the other exams. I was refreshing every 5 minutes that day, its so frustrating, but they will come out as some point.

    Yep, studied really hard. I think it is more the study material from Kaplan that has been the issue, one whole exam question was not covered in their study text at all.
  • hazel123hazel123 Registered Posts: 11
    And the resources provided by AAT online are useless
  • n7ds13n7ds13 Registered Posts: 4
    I had to use ACCA materials to go over relevant costing, as it was not covered in any of the materials provided by AAT or providers, and is what Q4 is based on in the exam.

    The online resources provided by AAT have little to no relevance for the exam.

    The study kit for the synoptic unit by Kaplan essentially gives you a list to remember (although the revision kit is quite useful) and only briefly goes over the core modules in the appendix (around 1-2 pages each).

    AAT fail to acknowledge the mistake that they have made in preparing the exam and providing resources which are adequate enough for students that give us a fair chance to pass.

    I got 54% as well. Can anyone recommend good learning resources? I have the BPP books and have been using AAT past papers

    Got my results at 1130. Passed with 79% (2nd attempt). It is possible to pass it, the problem is it is totally different to how all the other exams are in level 4. I realised this more when taking the External auditing exam last week.
    I believe i got NYC last time because i didn't reference the Case Study enough in my answers and if you look at the examiners report, you cant get the high marks without referencing them.

    The best thing to do if you don't get competent this time is to give yourself a couple of days to get the anger and disappointment out of your system (for me its cycling) and then get a study plan together and get ready for the next exam.

    Someone posted about some youtube videos on relevant costing (I will try and find the link) which explain it really well.

    Thanks for all the great advice. Really bummed out so will have the weekend to relax before re-booking the exam. I've got external auditing in December so will crack on after then. I think the exam is just completely different to all the others so will have to reconsider what I revise.

    If you haven't already, take a look at the examiners report. Its on the study support search page.

    Yeah, I did look at the examiners report in some detail. Will wait until it is refreshed for the September sitting to see if anything is added
  • DanielEvansSouthallDanielEvansSouthall Registered Posts: 26
    Will also look at the new SAMS which have recently been made available on the AAT website

    Thank you @CSan89

    Has anyone had their statement of achievement updated yet?
  • absco14absco14 Registered Posts: 34
    Thankfully got 78% first time. I used Osborne synoptic workbook and tutorial and found it to help a lot! Maybe give that a go? It definitely can't hinder, it's just more practise

    I got 79% first time. I don't really make a fuss about passing a test before but this is different so I'm celebrating. I came home from the day I took the test knowing that I lost 13 marks right away as I did not know the answer to Task 4 for 7 marks, and Task 6 for 6 marks. However, I still wrote "guesses" which turned out to be completely wrong for Task 6. I wonder if I got marks for those guesses which I explained in great detail? As it is, my Task 4 turned out as "Exceeded" and Task 6 as "Met". I did not know Task 6 because it wasn't in Kaplan resources. My advice for those who will be sitting it again is to keep on practicing to answer "properly" covering all the bits they want to see. Cheers!
  • absco14absco14 Registered Posts: 34
    Yes I agree. I feel we have essentially been the guinea pigs for the synoptic so it's definitely deserved to celebrate if you have passed. And if you've haven't there's always next time don't give up! :)

    Where do people get the detailed feedback on the assessments? I've passed the Synoptic with 76% but would really like to know where I lost marks as I really thought I had done better than that.I have asked our distance learning lecturer whether they receive the feedback, but he reckons that they don't.
  • kelkel Registered Posts: 4
    Chrisw ring AAT and ask for the feedback. They will send you an email with the feedback. But only if you do not have a training provider or if you no longer have contact with them.
    I need to re-sit mine. Do you have any advice? What material did you studied with? Thanks
  • chriswchrisw Registered Posts: 4
    Hi Kel, I studied with Avado distance learning but as I've moved on faster than the rest of my group (we started 17 Oct 2016) and they have not written the synoptic exam yet, I studied for it just using their Accounting Systems and Controls text and doing the practice assessments on the AAT website. For the other exams I used the BPP question and answer banks alongside the college texts. So far I've had no feedback from AAT whatsoever - and drawn a blank asking the tutor.
  • chriswchrisw Registered Posts: 4
    I think everyone's comments about the exam being very different from the online practice ones is valid. I've been working in accounting for many years and feel that a lot of my answers were based on experience rather than learning. This is not as it should be - many students are at the start of their career and may not have had any experience at all!
