How to submit an incident report?

Students sitting remotely for AAT exams must submit an incident report after any issues have occurred. The submission should contain a detailed account of the issue. Its effects and how it was resolved if possible. 

Students are responsible for submitting their reports within one working day to Completed by anyone else will not be accepted as valid documentation. If further investigation is required to ensure fairness during examinations. 

AAT will consider this when their performance in the assessment is reviewed.

If a student cannot submit their exam, issue a valid result instead of a void wherever possible. This is only where the invigilation video covers the full duration of the sitting until submission.

However, if the invigilation video has stopped partway through the assessment due to a drop in internet connectivity. AAT will void the attempt. AAT will also issue a credit note back to the scheduling exam centre to the value of AAT’s exam fee.

Remote AAT Exams are available for all students.


To maintain the validity and security of the Remote AAT Exams, students will not be allowed to take blank paper into the assessment. Only a single piece of paper containing the student’s keycode. They will not be able to access websites.

Students should download this Remote invigilation live assessment troubleshooting guide (PDF)They should also ensure that it’s on their PC and accessible from their desktop before starting their exam, so they can easily and quickly refer to it if needed.
