AAT AQ2016 employer guide

The new AAT syllabus, AQ2016, will be made available to students from 1st September 2016. Students can still study the AQ2013 syllabus up until 31st December 2017, however any new level started after 1st September 2016 will automatically be started on the new syllabus.

What needs to be done and when?

It is important to understand the differences between AQ2016 and AQ2013 in order for you and your students to choose the most suitable syllabus, with a decision needed by 1st September.

  • New naming for each Level
  • Synoptic assessment changes
  • New grading system
