AAT Student Stories: William Hopwood | AAT Level 2 and 3 Review

William Hopwood

AAT Level 2 and 3

William was looking to enhance and progress his accountancy career when his Accounts Manager recommended him to study AAT Level 2 and Level 3. Continue reading to find out more about his learning experience. 

I got my first job in accounting as 'Accounts Assistant' at Crane Electronics last summer. I've loved working here and always known I've wanted to progress. The Accounts Manager recommended to study AAT.

Being ambitious I wanted to push ahead and study whenever I could and do the exams as soon as I was ready. ICS have provided exactly that, I study how I want, when I want and as much as I want.

When I’ve learnt the material, I use the AAT website for past exam papers, brush up on any weaknesses and then book in the exam with a local AAT exam centre. The student portal was initially hard to navigate but I have since become accustomed.

My favourite part about ICS Learn is my tutor Shelley. She gets back to me promptly, makes things clear and simple to understand, cares about my scores and is genuinely invested in my results.

She’s even replied to one of my questions on a Sunday evening and marked a paper I handed in with less than 24 hours before my exam, and still managed to get it back to me with time to go through it. Whilst there is no face to face learning I feel the extra on hand support by Shelley has more than made up for this. I would recommend to all students and future students of ICS Learn to make sure they take full advantage of their tutor.

I started studying with ICS Learn last summer and have since passed AAT level 2, and 4/6 exams for AAT level 3. While studying I have found parts of accounting I want to pursue and study further beyond AAT.

The studying has transferred into my career, I have a lot more knowledge at work, I am now more employable and worth much more to my company.
