    I want to study Accounting at university, and I was wondering if my subject combination was a good one for me to do this..I'm taking:
    - Maths (Statistics)
    - Business Studies
    - Human Biology
    - Psychology
    Do you think unis will be willing to offer me a place with these? (Depending on my final grades, of course).

    I think so. Can you do Economics instead of business though?

    Biology is way more exciting that human biology, btw

    I also agree, also I thought Psychology sucked. Its a realy easy subject if you can remeber facts but just so dull. I dont know if all exam boards are the same (I think I was on edexcel) but we had to basically just know 6 approaches, each with
    2 key assumptions
    at least 2 theories
    at least 2 studies
    at least 1 contemporary issue and
    at least 1 Key application

    and that was the LEAST you could expect from an approach, very little practical or anything of any intrest realy, but if you put some work in very easy to come out with an A.

    The subjects you chose are great, as the 4 subjects are in different disipline and it is balanced. If you find it too much, you could drop one subject at the end of year 12. Most universities will make their offers with 3 A-levels. If you have 4, they might change the offer a bit. Depends on the universities you are applying to. Some of my friends done 4 A-levels, and their offer details were to achieve a certain grade with anay 3 A-levels.

    If you decide to drop one of your 4 A-levels at the end of year 12, you could pick up AS Economics. Therefore you would have, 3 A-levels and 2 AS's (a subject you dropped and Economics). That is find for university entrance.

    You could always carry on with your other 3 subjects to A2 and just do an AS in economics then, or if you really wanted to, you could teach yourself the A2.

    Would further maths be an advantage for accounting? It's just people with history degrees can be become accountants, so I wondered if a great deal of mathematial knowledge is needed. Most other maths subjects further maths would be sought after.

    No I dont think so. Most unis dont specify it. If you are good and like maths then you can do further maths, but you dont have to. Better do do maths, econ and some other subject that you like.

    Further Maths certainly looks good. Contrary to popular belief, it is not just a little extension of Maths A-Level.
