Level 4 - general discussion


I have just started to study my level 4 AAT after completing my level 2 and level 3 AAT bookkeeping.

The first module I am studying is financial statements of limited companies which seems pretty straight forward so far. I am planning of taking the exam end of February and I have just started to study for it would anyone be able to tell me if this seems a reasonable time scale?

Many thanks.

    This was also my first exam, which I booked about 7 weeks in advance, so about the same timescale as you.
    But your readiness for the exam depends on how much time you spend per week studying, any knowledge or experience you have in the subject, and also your confidence.

    Thanks for you comment , did you pass first time? I usually study for an hour and a half every evening and on my lunch break I really want to try and pass level 4 by December. I currently work as a bookkeeper so I do have some experience.

    Yes, I passed first time. Not so confident about the synoptic though!

    I'm literally dreading the synoptic everyone I have spoken to says it's the worst.
