Well it looks like it’s over.
I say over, not quite. Still must be interviewed and it’s then marked by an independent examiner just to make sure the lady who has marked it as we’ve gone along has been correct.
But apparently I’ve passed.

Well it looks like it’s over.
I may have written about how ICAS works before, but a brief recap. As you write it you have five feedbacks. Then you’ve written the whole thing and you get five assessments. Essentially they’re the same thing really.
Anyway so I’ve written my whole report, and done all the background documents as well – for example you have to make sure it fulfills various requirements for the AAT like signing stuff and putting your name and declaration that it’s your work. Then a completion checklist and mapping document and stuff like that.
So all the bits and pieces are done; and submitted. The deadline was 11pm on the 28th, I got it in at around 9am that day. It should take fourteen days to get feedback and then I’ll have another week. Fingers crossed it’s all correct obviously.
Well it’s sort of done.
Not to get too technical but I’ve written it all and I have it reviewed a few times and then you submit the final time. So that’s where I am just waiting to get my first feedback on the full report and we’ll see.
So my deadline is the 18th of December so just around the corner. I’ve done okay we submit stuff the lady says change this and I change it.
It’s no where near as bad as people made me think. So either they’re dumb or I’m just doing really rather well (almost – not perfect so that’s a big negative) but the issue for me now is we have to say for example you’d spend £X improving and £X would be saved if you did it. So I picked payroll and it looks like you’d save but not tonnes. Although I picked it as it’s fraud. So I can’t say oh you’ll save £10,567 as we have no idea how much cash has gone out in false overtime payments.
Well I’ll keep working on it as I’m so near the end and it needs to be done and right.
I’m only a little bit behind now and really I’m aiming to be all caught up by this weekend and also all read up. If you know what I’m saying.
But it’s not going too bad – I did nothing over the weekend :(
Tomorrow I’m going to stay at work thinking that the quiet and inability to sort of mess around will help me.
But this all does fit into a larger plan so I do need to change my ways.
I’ve sort of caught up with this although now I need to keep caught up.
Just reading through all the bits and pieces to make it work.
Lots of complicated referencing stuff.
So this is the one I’m two weeks behind and it’s to the point of I may have to re-schedule and in turn pay all over again.
I hope not as it’s not cheap if nothing else and really even though I’m a dick for messing up like this I need to complete it.
Also I now have to wait for my case study and learn what has to happen and all. Then write a project plan submit that and write it; still while being behind!
Again no one to blame but me so just have to boom it out. I hope my tutor lady will cut me some slack a bit so I can catch up then it should be okay.
This is one of my AAT units – it’s the project unit that’s meant to take ages and be awkward.
I chased this up a while ago but no one got back to me so I missed out the course starting on the 7th. So I’ve got to wait until the 25th September which is a bit of a pain as that means I simply can’t finish sooner kind of thing.
It would have been nice after all this time to get it done and not wait any fucking longer.
But the lady who booked it for me was very nice so every cloud
