    Economics and accounting are not similar at all from my experience. Economics includes a lot of difficult maths, whereas accounting is basic maths but applied to complicated processes. I found accounting modules a lot easier than economics ones and also less interesting. It is mostly number-crunching whereas economics has a wider reach as it's closely related to politics and philosophy.

    The top accountancy firms do not care what degree you have though so just do whichever you think you'll enjoy more. Something to consider is whether you want to get the ACA qualification - if you do then definitely choose accounting as you'll be exempt from certain exams.
