How difficult would accounting or finance be for me?

    I've just finished school and I'm not 100% sure what to study but I'm sorting my uni stuff out before clearance on the 30th of June. I've been contemplating doing either accounting or finance but the only thing holding me back is whether I'll be capable of doing it. I did two BTECS and an Alevel. I got a Distinction in Busines and Media and I'm hoping I've got a B in Alevel maths but I may have got a C (One exam I didn't do so well in). I know of course people get top grades and do these kind of courses so I'm worried that I'll struggle on the basis that mine aren't exactly top. Are they both courses that you can get a very good grade in from hardwork as opposed to personal ability?
