Level 4 AAT AQ2016 Exam Expiry

Hi guys..

I started studying AQ2016 syllabus of AAT Level 4 in September 2016, due to the release of the new syllabus there were plenty of teething problems with the exams and like many others this made the course more difficult.

I passed the following exams on the following dates:
Financial statements 07/12/17
Budgeting 19/01/17
External auditing 31/08/17

I am left with MCDL, Synoptic & Cash management exams, which I sat numerous times and struggled to pass.. I've seen that these exams have been revised & simplified & after a short break I'm ready to try and pass these last three subjects in order to qualify.

Does anybody know how long I have before the first three passed exams expire?

Thanks in Advance

    @Becxo the curriculum will be revised again for AQ2019. So you have at least three years :-)

    Thank you AAT Team, So i'll need to get the last three passed this year, as next year the new syllabus will be released

    Your units wouldn't necessarily expire, that would depend on how/if the curriculum changes. You will also get an additional 12 months to finish from the date a new curriculum is introduced (as with AQ2013 - AQ2016).

    It's worth noting too that it isn't always every three years, that's just how its been the last few times. The curriculum and its relevancy is always in review.

    I think I will aim to complete them by the end of the year as a personal goal!
