Transition (AQ2016 – Q2022)

Transition (AQ2016 – Q2022)

Transition advise for AQ2016 students

You must have passed one exam under AQ2016 to be eligible to transfer.

We recommend you change to Q2022 unless you stand to lose any significant exam passes under the AAT’s transitional rules.

Read our transitional guidance below to help you decide.

If you are an apprentice, you must discuss and agree with your Talent Coach before transferring.

Any achievement prior to AQ2016 (AQ2010, AQ2013 and NVQ) will not be recognised by the AAT.
