We will have courses starting for various units throughout the year. Subject to the AAT’s guidance about certain units that must be sat before others, you should never be more than 4 weeks away from being able to start an AAT course with McArthurMorgan.

You may start Level 2 without any prior qualifications.

The price includes all of your tuition, revision, marking of practice mocks together with the provision of all study materials used throughout the course.

The CBT assessment fee is NOT included in the price of the course. AAT registration fees are also not included.

Due to the flexible nature of our course structures a student can complete the whole AAT within 18 months or take over 3 years – the choice is yours!


If you are paying your own course fees, then let us help ease the financial burden, by giving you a free instalment option.

After payment of a deposit on enrolment (to cover the cost of materials), the remaining balance can be spread over the duration of your course.

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.

Students need to be registered with the AAT before they attempt their first assessment.

Students will receive an informal indication of their result immediately after attempting an exam for most of the AAT modules covered at Levels 2 & 3. A formal result will be notified to them by the AAT shortly after sitting the exam.

The Using Accountancy Software module within Level 2 and the Synoptic Assessments at each level takes up to 6 weeks before results are released by the AAT.

All Level 4 exams take approximately 6 weeks to mark by the AAT. An instantaneous result is not possible currently at this level since all CBA’s will include extended written tasks and these will still be marked by AAT markers.

Students will be able to sit a retake with McArthurMorgan (if relevant) after a cooling off period (3 working days) of their previous attempt.
