AAT AQ2013 Level 2 Certificate in Accounting

This is the Introductory Level of the AAT accounting qualification and also available as a standalone qualification. There are no specific entry requirements for Level 2 and so is suitable for:

  • school leavers
  • people looking to change careers
  • people with no or limited accounting experience.
Syllabus information

Aim of the syllabus

Level 2 (Level 5 in Scotland) covers a range of basic accounting practices and techniques, from costing and double-entry bookkeeping to computerised accounts.

Level 2 units

There are five mandatory units:

  • Processing Bookkeeping Transactions (PBKT)
  • Control Accounts, Journals and the Banking System (CJBS)
  • Working Effectively in Accounting and Finance (WKAF)
  • Basic Costing (BCST)
  • Computerised Accounting (CPAG)

Study time required

This will depend on the student, but we tend to recommend roughly 6 hours of study per week. Level 2* should take 6-12 months to complete.

Assessment method

There are two types of computer based exams for AAT - Computer Based Tests (CBT) and Computer Based Projects (CBP). For the 5 units that make up Level 2 there are:

  • 4 CBTs
  • 1 project

Results are available on request from a member of Customer Service staff immediately after sitting your Computer Based Test.

The project is marked by Kaplan and we will contact you with your results within two weeks.

Exemptions and links to other papers

There are no specific entry requirements. GCSE Maths and English are useful but not essential.

When you enrol, Kaplan will perform an initial assessment to help you decide the best level to begin the qualification. You can also complete AAT’s Skillcheck, an online test to guide you on to the right level where you should begin your studies.

You can sit the units in any order although it is recommended you sit Processing Bookkeeping Transactions (PBKT) before attempting Controls, Journals and the Banking System (CJBS).
