    Maths and English. Courses and jobs you apply for may require minimum grades in these so make sure you are getting 'B's to leave options open.

    Doesnt matter what you pick for GCSE, as long as you make sure you are great at maths. If you can't get a Grade 6 minimum at GCSE you won't be able to do related courses in college and not be able to do it at Uni. Just have a look on college websites and university websites to see what subjects you need and what grades. For A levels, i'd recommend maths, Accounting, and perhaps English language or literature.

    Maths and English, then whatever interests you. At a-level, again whatever that interests you and is preferably a facilitating subject. At uni, anything that interests you but is at least a traditional subject.

    There are no real pre-reqs to becoming an accountant.. you don't even need to go to uni nowadays.

    I used to be like you. I did pretty well in my gcse and i had A's in maths and triple science, c at english and the rest were b and c. When i went to college i automatically picked maths and accounting but didn't know what i wanted for a 3rd choice. I ended up looking at university requirements and decided that having an a-level in english wasn't required so i decided to do something i liked and picked physics and chemistry. I got a b in maths and c in the science subjects and passed both years of aat but at the end i wasnt enjoying it as much like i used so i'm going to pursue economics. From my experience having a good level of knowledge in maths really helps for accounting. You don't start doing written statements until the end of the second year and they are pretty straight forward. Take from this what you will but i don't think you gotta worry to much what gcses you pick since maths and english are always there. As long as you do well on them its at a-levels that you really gotta concentrate and focus because it's a big step-up. Good luck, hope this helps
