Which AAT papers are harder?
26 January 2017
Level 2 Introduction to Payroll Systems continues to hold the dubious honour of being the AAT assessment with the lowest pass rate – just 45.2% of sitters have managed a pass in the last year. That said the 45% is a slight increase on the last set of pass rates - where the Level 2 paper had a pass rate of 43.4%.
The latest pass rates (below) cover the year until June 2016. The figures show students also struggling with Personal Tax (Level 4) and Accounting Skills to Run Your Business (Level 2). Although, the latter only had a few sitters over the year (57 in all).
At 50.5% the pass rate for Personal Tax is actually also on the rise. For the year ending 31 December 2015 the PTAX pass rate was 46%. It has now broken the 50% barrier.
As way of a contrast the current pass rate for level 4 ISYS is 89.6% and for level 1 Spreadsheets Software it is a whopping 95%.
*The next report for the year-ending 31 December 2016 will be available around mid to late March 2017.
