I want to be a chartered accountant and I just want to know if these are the right A Levels I have chosen:
Physics (Dropping it in A2)
How about Accountancy, Finance, Statistics, Economics and Business Studies
I've heard Accountany and Business are soft subjects so I don't want to choose them. My new sixth form also doesn't do Finance.
History is a bit of an odd one, but if you like it then I guess there's nothing wrong choosing it as it'll keep your essay-writing skills up. Maybe take up Further Maths? Definitely keep Maths and Economics though.
Yeah Maths and Economics are ones I definitely want to keep, I'm not choosing Further Maths as I know I won't be able to do any good in the subject.
Past math, as long as you do A levels that are not percieved as soft, you are going to be fine.
So yes they are completely fine. No need to do F math.
Those A-Levels are fine. The most important is A-Level Maths because it shows you as being analytical.
Do you want to go into chartered accountancy after your A-Levels or do you actually want to do a degree and then after your degree go into chartered accountancy? Also, what degree do you want to do?
Pretty much any combination of academically respected subjectes including maths would be fine.
They're fine. To be honest, as a profession it doesn't seem to require much academic ability from what I've seen. You have to pass the exams and stuff with ICAEW but I wouldn't say any of this particularly draws on any A levels you've studied and I wouldn't say an A level in accounting would help all that much either. Therefore, I'd say to get into a good university to get onto a good grad scheme, I'd just say do 4 respected A levels, whichever they may be.
Choose Accounting a-level it will give you a small boast of what the course in uni will be like
Oh and Business
Hey, i also want to become a Charter Accountant (maybe) and i have a place at LSE for Accounting & Finance. My ALs are Accounting, Maths, Further Maths and History! Deffinetely try Accounting if you are really set on becoming a Charter Accountant as it would definetely help you with university. Also further maths will be helpful as finance includes many topics from further maths. Hope that helps!
Hello guys! A quik question from me.
I am at the end of GCSE and am starting A-Levels in September 2013.

In the start I wanted to do engineering but then I thought of Chartered Accountancy. I cannot change my options now, so I wanted to know is it still possible to get to the top uni's and then become a Chartered Accountant, with these subjects? Please help!
