    I want to become an accountant but I'm really confused at the moment. Should I go to uni and do a degree or is it better to go to some place like PWC and KPMG? :confused:

    The A levels I'm currently doing are;
    Business Studies
    Maths
    Chemistry
    Psychology

    You have a few choices. You can go to University and do a degree you enjoy, then apply to some graduate schemes. The schemes can be for all different types of accountants including management accountants (industry schemes like Tesco), auditors (advisors), tax, restructuring, corporate finance, etc.

    Alternatively you can apply to some school leaver schemes where you will study towards a qualification straight away or via Uni first. Research the different schemes and see what is best for you.
