A Level choices to become an accountantWatch
IT is not always about how "powerful" they are. It is also about enjoying the subjects. I took that into account in my suggestions.
Mathematics is a dull and dreary subject. Doing two mathematics (maths and further maths as some have said) would be murder.
I would like to have a career in accountancy
The subjects for As level I am thinking of choosing are:
- Possibly Business studies or Economics
Would these subjects be alright to get into university to do an accounting and finance degree afterwards?
What I will say is that the career path such as uni, internship to graduate job does not necessarily require you to study accounting. I'm about to join a Big 4 and 90% of the associates there have not studied accounting. Accounting is also not very maths-dense, you will likely be doing simple calculations. However, it is paramount that you have business insight and some level of maths skills.
Quick question: Im doing A2 Biology and Accounting and AS Business studies and Maths (i too am thinking of becoming an accountant. Would this be ok to get into some of the top universities for accounting or should i pick up AS economics?
Please quote me in reply and thanks!
For the OP: I really suggest doing accountancy (even if its at AS as it will help you make a final decision)!
I’ve got BBC in my alevels B in accounting and sociology. I’m undecided about whether to pay to get a review of marking for the C. Is it worth it. Can I still get into accountancy with BBC or is it better to try get a third B. I was three marks off but my teacher said it’s unlikely to gain 3 marks from a review of marking which is the only option available to me at this stage
I’ve been reading all these comments and have been unsure, I also want to become an accountant or actuary and I have chose business / financial studies and maths, I enjoy those subjects so far. I don’t want to do economics yet people are recommending it and are stating financial studies aren’t relevant. Can you help?
