How AAT courses are assessed
All of the units covered by the AAT will be assessed via Computer Based Test (CBT):
Our students receive AAT study materials, which matches the latest AAT syllabus. All our AAT study materials are exam focused and very student friendly.
You will receive study workbooks, student notes, revision notes and practice questions in the style of the Computer Based Tests (CBTs).
Revision and Mocks
Our Tuition and Revision Phases are designed to be seamless. The Tuition Phase will give you the knowledge and reinforce it through question practice. You will then perfect your skills in the Revision Phase.
Each revision course ends with a full mock exam, to ensure you are ready to cope with the real exam.
Your mock will be marked in plenty of time for you to iron out any last minute glitches and be successful in the real exam.
