AAT to move to remote testing

The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) is working to make remote invigilation possible from August 2020, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Assessments will be available in a phased approach and s revised synoptic schedule for impacted assessments will be published in the near future. AAT is targeting August for delivery of the following assessments:

  • Advanced Diploma in Accounting – Level 3 (Level 6 in Scotland):
  • Advanced Bookkeeping (AVBK)
  • Financial Accounts Preparation (FAPR)
  • Management Accounting: Costing (MMAC)

 

  • Professional Diploma in Accounting – Level 4 (Level 8 in Scotland):
  • Professional Diploma Synoptic Assessment (PDSY).

 

AAT noted that not all assessments can be taken via remote invigilation for security reasons and that it is working on alternative solutions in these cases.

AAT CEO Mark Farrar said: “AAT is adapting each day to consider new ways to engage our members and customers, and to provide suitable support and services throughout this challenging period. We’re conscious of the need to support our wide range of students and training providers, and confident we now have solutions that can work for many of our students. We are excited by the opportunity to use different technology to deliver assessments and help our students on their journey to complete their qualifications.”

Within the last week, both ACCA and CIMA announced plans to introduce remote testing.
