AAT ‘uplifting’ MDCL marks
07 April 2017
The AAT has acted to concerns surrounding the Management Accounting: Decision & Control (MDCL) assessment.
Following the suspension and subsequent reinstatement of MDCL in February the AAT received a number of new complaints from both students and training providers.
Many felt the Level 4 assessment was just too difficult, with high numbers of students stuck at “not yet competent”.
AAT explained it carried out an internal investigation. The result is “uplifting the percentage marks for each student who has completed the MDCL assessment. The AAT said: “This is to ensure that the pass rate for MDCL aligns more closely to the pass rates for FPFM during the same point in its lifecycle.”
The association says that it will be making adjustments to all assessment results that have been released from 1 September 2016 until 23 march 2017. It is envisaging that a number of results may change! Updated results will be shown on Centre Assessment Results from Monday 10 April.
After 23 March any adjustments needed were applied to the results prior to release.
The AAT is promising to monitor the performance of MDCL and all other assessments very closely. Adjustments to MDCL questions will also ‘happen’ in the longer term.
AAT says it will be contacting students directly about their results and apologised for any upset and uncertainty the problems have caused.
