Finance/Accounting degree without A-Level mathsWatch
I got a B in GCSE Maths so I took Geography, History and Psychology onto A Levels but I'm now really interested in doing an Accounting or Finance related degree at university.
I've looked at lots of universities and none of them require Maths at A Level like QMUL and Southampton etc. However, would good grades not be enough to get if if I haven't take Maths even though it's not required?
I'm planning on getting 1 weeks work experience at an Accountancy firm but I need advice before taking it through and starting on my personal statement.
Edit: Or I'm thinking of doing Business Management
I think getting in the course is different to being able to understand the course material with only GCSE maths, especially when it comes to more complex modules like econometrics or the other one which is calculus and a lot unis get u to take it in first year and you will be in the position of learning everything from scratch? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm commenting on the assumption that a level geography doesn't provide much mathematical or statistical knowledge to you?
Psychology might,I'm not sure. But it's always best to check with the individual uni.

I hadn't studied maths at school and I'm now on track to graduate in accounting & finance with a first. You don't need it. Obviously having an understanding of advanced maths is beneficial, but is A level maths crucial? No. The maths associated with accounting is basic. Financial maths is slightly more complex, but still relatively easy. Most, if not all, unis will also make accounting & finance students take statistics which again, is complex but not overly so.
