    Hi all

    I'm 26 and recently returned from 2 years travelling. I graduated in 2011 with a BA Hons 2:2 in History and Criminology and now intend to become a Chartered Accountant.

    I'm just hoping someone here can point me in the direction I need to go. I want to study and work through an Accounting firm - a friend of mine did it through Deloitte and this is the kind of route I want to go.

    I'm sorry if this is all a little vague, I just don't really know where to start so any advice would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    If you can, get on an ACA training contract, but if you fail your exams you lose everything so it's a gamble.


    If you're less of an exam machine do ACCA


    also, adding up and taking away is boring
