Importance of Level 2

Hi all,

I have completed Level 3 and will be completing Level 4 this year (hopefully!!). I have one unit incomplete for 2 (Computerised Accounts) from the 2013 syllabus. At the time, my tutor asked me to call them for a few oral questions which would allow me to pass the unit, I guess I was in too much of a rush to start Level 3. I checked yesterday for the bets course of action in finishing the unit, however I have been told I will have to do the whole Level again or just ignore it.

Is it enough to complete Levels 3 and 4 or will having Level 2 incomplete be an issue?

    Not an Issue if you've already completed level 3

    I personally completed level 2 before i started level 3 which helped me in my level 3 studies, but i don;t see any value in you going back to level 2 if you've already completed level 3

    technically speaking i don't believe there's anything stopping someone from studying level 4 without completing level 3??

    Level 2,3+4 are all separate qualifications so as thelowendtheory18 has said you don't need any of the previous ones to do the next though they do assume knowledge of the ones before

    Thanks both, i guess what I am asking is; upon completing Level 4 (after passing Level 3) will I have the same qualification as those who have completed every level e.g MAAT status.

    Ah I see..

    There is no difference If you have completed all levels or only level 4

    @thelowendtheory18 Perfect thank you. Hopefully AAT will allow me to complete the one unit I have remaining for Level 2, if not it was worth it :astonished:
