    I would like to start my career in accountancy and have been looking at doing the aat qualification part time at my local college, is it essential to do level 2 or would i be able to go straight to level 3? I have a young baby and cant really afford to spend 2 years studying.

    You have to do level 2 unless you can show you have past experience or have studied accountancy before

    I have completed the aat qualification and from that got 3 exemptions for acca f1 f2 and f3.
    Why would you want to do aat now? Aat should be for before acca not after.

    Dear Luke

    I have completed the AAT level 2, and am currently studying the AAT Diploma level 3. I am finding it extremely difficult to gain employment within accountancy as I am finding that some companies do not know what the AAT is, they say that I am too qualified for a trainee position or I am applying for jobs which people with A levels are. I do not have any work experience in accounting, apart from manual purchase and sales ledger which I did for a company. and was wondering if you have knowledge on the best way I can gain employment within this area.

    Kind regards

    Hi Luke,

    My name is Jim and I am in Year 11. I am really stressing out now even though I have done my GCSE's. I am stressing out because I want to enter in the finance career through a really good university but a lot of people said they have been turned down as they had low grade GCSE's. My predicted grades are A*AAABBCCCC which is really putting me down. By the way I am predicted an A* in math. With those kind of grades do you believe students be accepted in Russell group universities and progress after to be an accountant. Please reply ASAP
