Accredited Accounting Technician (AAT) Examination

Exemption Policy

Students with accredited qualifications can apply for paper exemption. Students intending to claim for exemptions from the Accredited Accounting Technician (AAT) Examination are required to submit the Exemption Application Form together with copies of their certificates / transcripts and the appropriate exemption fee.

Students sitting examination papers from which exemptions have already been granted should note that the examination status prevails irrespective of the exemption granted.

In normal circumstances, the HKIAAT does not grant an exemption over an exemption.

Under the HKIAAT’s New Qualification Framework (NQF), exemptions will be granted on a subject by subject basis up to a maximum of eight papers to graduates of accredited programmes offered by educational institutions effective from intakes of 2009/2010 academic year. Please note, however, that the information provided here is for reference only and is subject to change without prior notice. For further details, please refer to the New Exemption Policy and List of Exemptions Awarded under the New Qualification Framework (August 2017 version).

For graduates who commenced the accredited programmes before 2009/2010 academic year, they are eligible for exemptions under the transitional arrangement. For details, please refer to the Exemption Policy and List of Exemptions Awarded (February 2009 version).

With effect from 1 January 2007, no applications for individual assessment will be entertained. Only qualifications that have been accredited by the HKIAAT will be considered when assessing whether a student can obtain exemptions from HKIAAT examination papers.
