Hi, i know this is quite unusual but in a week or so i am going to start the AAT level 2/3 fast track in my local college which will mean i will hopefully have the AAT level 3 qualification when i am 17 in July 2016 . I am then going to enroll onto my local sixth form to study A level Accounting and other A levels.

I am planning to finish the AAT after my A levels on an apprenticeship etc.

I was wondering what would be better to do: the above that i have just mentioned or the A levels and then the AAT.

Also if i were to do the AAT first and then the A levels do you think the A level in Accounting would be easier?

Thank you very much.

Hi Bobby,

The AAT is made up of three levels (Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced), of which we usually say that the Intermediate or middle level is equivalent to an Accounting A Level. This means that you may not have to study both - for example if you study all three levels of the AAT there would be no need to take an Accounting A Level at all, you'd actually be at more of a University level of study, and would have exemptions from further accountancy qualifications (e.g. ACCA or CIMA).

What you study is completely your choice, and if it helps I know that the AAT actually produce there own 'skillcheck' which shows you which level might be the best starting point. https://www.aat.org.uk/find-a-course...ses/skillcheck You don't need any experience to start the Introductory Level.

If you did want more info on AAT apprenticeships have a look around our page: http://www.bpp.com/apprenticeships/p...es/accounting/


Hope this helps!
