Hi, I am looking to get onto the AAT Foundation Certificate In Accounting level 2 at my local collage, I'm 34 and only have a D grade in English and E in Maths at GCSE so have to attend an 2 hour assessment/interview first which apparently consists of a literacy and numeracy test, is there anyone here who has attended one of these assessments tell me how difficult the assessments are to pass?

I took the AAT skillcheck test on their website and scored 16/30, got all of the it/office questions correct, but the accountancy questions looked like a different language so obviously didn't get any of them correct.

Also if I did manage to get on the course and pass level 2 would that possible negate the need to retake GCSE's in English and Maths as would passing level 2 show employers (presuming I was going for a job in the accountancy sector) that my maths and english is effectively at the standard of C grade at GCSE? Any responses to my above questions would be much appreciated.

Autism is making this all very challenging to say the least, just hope I will have the aptitude to be able to pass the assessment tests.

Hi, I dont know if this will help as your test might be different to mine. But I just had my AAT interview and the maths is okay, I would advise to learn percentages and for the literacy I was asked to write a pretend letter to a company that had not paid their invoices in time, I think that was to see how you summarise information
