English and maths qualifications are vitally important for future employers and universities, so the government has made it a priority for students to improve these skills.

Entry Level / Level 1 and Level 2: We’re here to help you on your journey, so if you do not achieve grade A*-C in GCSE English and/or maths, then you will study English and/or maths as part of your college course.

Students who achieve a D grade will be placed on the relevant GCSE programme, while students who achieve an E or below will be assessed to ensure they are placed on the right study programme for their ability.

Level 3 programmes: You will need to meet the course entry requirements specified on the course information above. For the majority of our Level 3 courses, students will need grade A*-C in GCSE English and/or maths. If this is not specified in the course entry requirement, then you may be able to study English and/or maths as part of your college course.


Each unit is examinable, with a final synophe assessment to complete the Level 3.

Future opportunities

AAT Level 3 provides UCAS points and can be used to assist university applications. Alternatively students can progress on to the Level 4 AAT (available as a part-time course) and ultimately membership of the AAT organisation. For students considering Higher Education, completion of Level 4 can allow students to progress to the second year of relevant degrees or the second year of some professional accountancy qualifications.
