Home Learning College AAT students outperform peers
86% pass rate achieved across three units – 6% above UK average
Results released this week by the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) show that 86% of people studying an AAT qualification with Home Learning College passed their exams in December 2009. This is 6% higher than the UK average and 15% higher than the global average.
Over 750 students sat their AAT exams through Home Learning College - the UK’s biggest provider of professionally accredited distance learning courses - at the end of last year. This is an increase from the previous examination session in June 2009 when the training provider submitted almost 600 students.
There are three moderated exams within the level 2 and 3 AAT Diploma pathway, covering Units 5, 6 and 30. Home Learning College students outperformed their peers across all units, with a variance ranging from 5% to 22%.
Commenting on these results, Dave Snow Academic Director of Home Learning College said: “We are one of the largest providers of AAT courses via distance learning in the UK and these results demonstrate why hundreds of people choose to study with us each year. We have a dedicated faculty of professionally trained AAT tutors who provide support and guidance to students, around what can sometimes be a tricky subject. Unit 6, for example, is notoriously challenging which is why the global pass rate is only 63%. As you can see from these results, Home Learning College students far exceeded this, with 82% passing that unit in December.
“Our tutorial service is boosted by our Virtual Learning Community (VLC) where people can access course materials, take part in forums and chat directly to students on the same course. The VLC provides a real sense of community which really enhances the distance learning experience.”
