To AATQB or to not AATQB

With luck I will by this time next month be through Level 3. I am just waiting for my professional diploma books so I can start the final level amd waiting on the synoptic results.

My question is has anyone passed level 3 and upgraded thier membership to AATQB to offer the 5 services from under that licence while studying for level 4? It doesn't appear on the face of it that it is worth it for the little you can do but I could of course be missing something.

Would be interested to hear from anyone that did do this while studying for level 4 or did you just wait until Level 4 completion and go through the MAAT route?

Also while I am on the level 4 subject, I know there are 2 options you can take and I am thinking on taking business and personal tax. Does anyone know if you can study for a 3rd and just do an individual exam as I do like the forensic option as well.

    For the options you can study and do more of the exams but you won't get extra credit. Your final result will come off the best 2.

    Don't think I am worried about the extra credit but I assume if in the future I want to offer a forensic service then I need to have studied it?

    Check with the AAT, but I'm pretty sure if you do an extra option it will show on your record.
