I'm studying GCSE's and ready to start A Levels. I'm primarily wanting to study Maths or Accountancy at University and wanting to become an Accountant. I love studying Maths and I'm going to carry on at A Level. I feel that studying Accountancy at University will restrict my career paths however could be more direct for a final career. However, I'm aware that some universities cover Financial Mathematics in their MMAth course and I'm wondering if that will be as beneficial as studying Accountancy as a course. After my degree, I could then progress to other careers other than accountancy or go into accountancy training to become an accountant. Which would be more beneficial?

You can study any degree and become an accountant. I know someone who studied Old English and is now an accountant at a top London firm. Study a subject you enjoy. Whether doing a module in financial mathematics will help you... I don't know, I doubt it will make much difference to be honest but it can't hurt.

People working at the Big 4 have all sorts of degrees so you don't have to take maths/or accounting.
I took maths at A level thinking I need it to be an accountant, turns out I don't. Literally biggest regret.
