Exams and Assessment Venues

Gold Edge Training delivers AAT courses throughout the United Kingdom (UK) and to international students who have access to an AAT approved assessment venue. AAT qualifications are divided into levels and each level is divided into units. In order to pass each unit, you are required to take a computer-based assessment (CBA). There are two types of CBA;

  • CBT (Computer-Based Test)
  • CBP (Computer-Based Project)

Every CBA must be invigilated and sat under exam conditions in an AAT approved assessment venue. In the majority of cases you will sit CBT assessments, which are computer marked and therefore you will receive your results before leaving the assessment venue. In the case of CBP assessments, which are marked manually by your AAT approved training provider: Gold Edge Training, you will be notified of your results within the following two to three weeks.

In line with AAT guidelines, Gold Edge Training work with a large number of AAT approved assessments venues within the UK, to provide an ‘on the doorstep’ exam location for all our students.

Prior to enrolment, you may use the AAT Find an Assessment Venue online search tool. Alternatively, we are happy to locate the venue/s closest to you and provide you with any relevant information. All you are required to do, is book the exam with the assessment venue of your choice, for the date indicated in your bespoke timetable, which you will complete before starting each unit.

Students who enrol with Gold Edge Training have the opportunity to sit their AAT computer-based assessments, at a wide range of locations nationwide including those in the table below:
