Payroll difficulties for AATs
19 July 2016
Introduction to Payroll Skills is currently the hardest AAT assessment to pass, according to the latest success rates.
The Level 2 paper had a pass rate of just 43.4%, for the year ending 31 December 2015. The next worse pass rate at Level 2 is Computerised Payroll Skills with a pass rate of 77.1%.
Personal Tax remains the real test at Level 4. It has a UK pass rate of 46% and an international one of just 26.7%. Little wonder just 15 international students sat PTAX during the year in question.
The AAT has also released the overall CBA success rates. Perhaps not surprisingly they go down at students move up the levels. So at Level 1 the pass rates are 92.4% and by the time PQs get to Level 4 they are 63.2%.
