On 1st September 2013, the new AAT qualification (AQ2013) came into effect, replacing the AQ2010 qualification.
If you are starting a new level from September 2013, then you will automatically be assigned to the AQ2013 syllabus.
If you’re part way through a level, you have the option to stay on the current syllabus or transfer. This depends on the units you have completed. For example, there are some units in AQ2010 which mean you’ll need to do a transitional assessment if you transfer to AQ2013, so in that case we’d recommend that you stay on the current syllabus.
This might sound complicated, but we’ll be helping you to make the transition as easy as possible. Take a look at our short guide below, or for any questions, contact your centre or customer services team.
There is more information on the AAT website as well as some FAQs.
