How to conquer your Level 3 synoptic
Advanced synoptic is a compulsory unit assessed as part of the AAT Advanced Level. It draws on and assesses knowledge and understanding from across the units you have already successfully completed (AVBK, FAPR, MMAC). It also incorporates Ethics for Accountants and Using Spreadsheets within a Finance Environment.
Notoriously hard and painful to revise – we know it’s a tough one. That’s why we’ve put together some advice for tackling the key to unlocking your AAT Level 3.
Mock the week
Practice mocks are your best friend. Nothing prepares you more for the real thing – we recommend you do as many as possible in the run up to your exam.
As part of an Eagle subscription, you have a range of mocks available online through Moodle and MyAAT. You also get 50% off Osborne Books if you prefer physical practice papers to work through.
They will help you identify gaps in your knowledge that you might be missing. They’ll also apply your learned knowledge. This will ensure you fully understand what the questions are asking you, by testing your knowledge of the theory but asking you in different ways.
By taking the time to go over these, you should feel at ease when you finally open that paper – you don’t want any nasty surprises on the day.
A recurring theme from the exams that we hear from our students are tests on needing to goal seek, VLookup, absolute reference and use pivot charts and tables.
We also recommend that you familiarise yourself with how to make an appropriation account – practice mocks will help you with this.
If Excel isn’t your strong suit, with Eagle you have unlimited access to academic mentors, who are there to help with any questions, issues or concerns.
