    I'm in A2 year and I do A2 geography, English lit and history. I'm fairly good at these subjects but I chose them because i enjoyed them at school and wasn't really planning ahead. My dads an accountant and it appeals to me however I have no subjects which are maths/ accountancy based. I only got a C at GCSE maths but from what I've read and what my dads said there isn't much complicated maths involved. I want to do it as a degree but not sure I'd get in anywhere. I'm not looking at Russell groups, I quite like the look of Kingston and it doesn't mention needing specific A levels to do accounting and finance there. Has anybody done this?

    If the entry requirements dont state any necessary subjects then i cant see a problem, maybe you could contact them and ask to be sure.
