    Eventually I want to end up having a career in accountancy. For a levels I was thinking of taking business, economics, accountancy and AS sociology but I’m not sure if they’re considered as soft subjects for universities. Some of the good universities don’t offer accounting degrees so I was also wondering if it would be best to do a business degree instead.

    If you really want to do accounting at uni you should do maths. And yes all of those subjects are considered soft

    Why not take maths? As an accountant you'd be dealing with numbers all day, every day you were at work and there will obviously be a massive amount of numbers when studying the degree.

    I'd take maths definitely, then another facilitating subject like physics, then business/sociology/economics. But it's up to you.

    It's not that they are soft it's just that there's a lot of overlap.

    Maths, Economics and Business Studies (or Sociology or Psychology) would be better.
