    Hi everyone,

    I want to go into something in the finance industry like accounting, actuarial etc. This would either be through university or as a higher apprentice.


    However, I need to pick between AS Accounts and extended project. I don't know which?!? :/


    Does anyone know which qualification will be better for a finance related career and which the universities and employers will prefer more?


    Any help is appreciated!

    Edit: I currently have ASs in maths, further maths, physics, chemistry and biology and have just started A2.

    I would recommend that you choose AS Accounting than EPQ because some universities don't even look at epq these day as its becoming too common. Even though EPQ is marked as an A level it's not really beneficial, in my opinion I would recommend Accounting as it will give you an insight on how it works and judging by what I read you come from a math background.

    But at the end of the day it's your chocie

    Thanks for the reply.

    That's what I was thinking. I just wanted a second opinion.

    Thanks again
