I keep getting this different type of question in the real exam and it’s nothing like the AAT mocks l. In the mocks you get given a scenario and graphs and explain how the business has done over the past 6 months, however in the real exam I don’t get this question and it’s something totally different and I don’t know how or answer it correctly. Has this happened to anyone else before ?

    Hi @symsx

    I haven't done this exam before but I wouldnt suggest try and practice from a range of sources, so the AAT mocks + your study guides + Open Tuition (see link below) has some good questions and answers you could use. Try to learn the concept not just the question and visuals. If you understand the concept even if they give you a different question it will give you a chance to be able to answer that question as you understand the theory.

    Hope this helps you out

    Kind regards

    I get you, and the exam is much harder on the real AAT exam. I have done this one before and got 10/13 considering that my English is not the best. You just gotta write. I got 80% for this exam.
    The other practice assessments, mocks and resources are not like the real exam either so do not know how to help you.

    My question was on a cafe in a matrix form. And I assume if you have failed you must have seen this one. It is like the pestle analysis on task 2. If you know the content you have to change it to the scenario to get it right. Mine was similarities use words like: similarly, likewise and differences: in contrast, on the other hand, however etc.

    @anony123 I’ve done this exam like 3 times. Got 69%, 63%, 61%. Either it’s task 2 I do good then bad in task 6. Or it’s task 6 I do good and bad in task 2. All depending on the scenario. My task 6 was like sales and marketing with a description, hr and finance with a description etc, then I had to match the departments with with what they r each responsible for from the options. Then I had to write I think what graph each department should use for their info. It was very confusing

    Could you ask for a breakdown of which areas going wrong then you could just focus on those areas. Just practice writing because in Level 4 there will be alot more writing required. Dont want to scare you but just letting you know in advance.

    Stay positive you will get there

    I think if you log into AAT and go into your study section, in there you should see your exam results, click on it and it should provide you with a breakdown of areas you exceeded or passed or didn't pass etc. Focus on those areas.

    Don't worry now about level 4, focus on this and you will see when you go forward you will get used to it so level 4 won't be as bad

    Kind regards

    Yh don’t worry the more you worry the more stress will be put on concentrate on task 2, task 4 and task 6. The other areas are quite simple. I struggled on task 3 for some reason. You must have come across the questions about the hens on task 2 and the matrix about cafes through the year for task 6.

    See it’s like this. I did not struggle on the English parts at all, it was just the cloud accounting that got me in a mess.
    Which areas do you think you need help on?

    @anony123 yes I get you. Task 1,5 and 7 I do good i’. It was task 6 and 3 I needed to improve on mostly.

    @symsx happy here to help as well. All the tasks I was pretty good at, except task 3 like you. Task 3 still does not make sense and AAT word those questions in such a weird way but it is hard to understand. And tbh I don’t really care know as I have passed and that is what counts.
    Task 6 have you had the matrix on the cafes?

    @anony123 yes exactly, the main thing is that you’ve passed which is good.
    I don’t think I’ve had the matrix question tbh

    @anony123 what do u mean by similarities and differences? Isn’t task 6 meant to be about explaining how a business has done based on the info and the graphs given ?

    Yh with another question I may have been really bad but you need 5-10 minutes to anaylse the data given to you and try and draw conclusions and ask yourself what does this information mean and tell me as well.
