    After not being too confident about AS levels. I'm thinking about resitting my A levels at another college. I'm really interested in Law and Accountancy. What would be your advice for the best A levels to take?


    If you haven't chosen between the two yet, I'd suggest doing A-level Maths, as it looks good both when applying for Law at uni as well as for Accountancy

    Other than that, you may want to look into doing a humanity like Economics, Government & Politics or Business Studies

    Keep in mind that you don't need to do Accountancy/Finance or Law undergraduate courses at uni in order to go into either career. You can do another subject and convert via a GDL in order to be eligible to apply for solicitor/barrister training for Law, or go straight into an apprenticeship or school leaver programme for Accountancy: http://careers.icaew.com/school-stud...s/Entry-routes

    However, I suspect that you will need to start deciding between the two fairly soon, particularly if you want to build up some work experience/reading/other extracurriculars for Law
