Waiting time for AAT Certificates


Last Friday i received my Level 2 Synoptic result, and confirmation of my overall distinction result

I've been told it can take up to 8 weeks to receive the official certificate from the AAT! This cant be right can it?

I'm assuming the 8 weeks is a very conservative estimate and you actually receive the certificate in a few weeks??

    Depends how busy they are. May come sooner or may be closer to 8 weeks with xmas on its way.

    Certificates usually take around 7-8 weeks to be processed and sent out. However, due to the festive period it may be close to 8 weeks. Hopefully you receive yours soon!

    When I got my certificates, at the time they stated 6-7 weeks, and it was usually around the 7 week mark for me too, so yeah. I guess they review all your exam results again to double-check before issuing the go-ahead for the certificate to be printed and posted...

    Well done, by the way, and I hope you receive it soon - it'll be a lovely (though probably quite late) Christmas present! ^^
