    I know this may seem like a stupid question but I am trying to think of an A-level which would go with business well, but I am not the best at Maths so do you think Accounting is the subject for me?

    You don't have to be good at Maths at all, and the Maths used in Accounting A-level isn't hard (it's pretty much GCSE Maths).

    Nope it's just simple adding, subtracting , multiplying and division. Not sure about A Level but with the accounting exams at uni you can use a calculator.

    Thank you for your knowledge, this has sort of helped me, I am considering taking 4 A-levels then I can drop one if needs be, so I thought accounting went well with business. Thank you for taking the time to reply to my cry for help. Your words of wisdom helped me very much. I appreciate it.

    Thank you for giving me this information it has helped me a lot on my decision to take it as an A-level. I am good at basic maths and more difficult stuff too, I am also good at the maths required in Business Studies at GCSE level so based on this I am encouraged to take it as my 4th A-level choice. Thank you for helping me make my decision a whole lot easier. Much Appreciated
