    I assume you mean A-levels? I would recommend that Maths is one of them. Have a look at different accounting courses to see what entry requirements they hold.

    If you mean A-levels, I would suggest you look at maths, economics and accounting of course.

    Again like "cheesecakelove" mentioned, have a look at the entry requirements for university courses for accountancy.

    A strong command of English does not go amiss, there is a fair bit of detail in legislation/guidance that requires careful reading and a sound understanding of say punctuation, to ensure correct understanding of sub clauses and which link with main clauses and which do not etc, this should not be overlooked. Now whether you need an A level in say English or History or other literate subject is moot, but certainly being very careful re how you read and your ability to express complex answers clearly in writing ought not to be ignored.

    Here is the sort of thing:

    https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga...ion/22/enacted

    or try sections 11 and 12 re this:

    https://www.frc.org.uk/getattachment...Ready-2015.pdf

    or most of this

    https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga...46/section/178

    A lot of the roles an accountant fulfills often involve verbal communication, this often needs to be very clear, very concise, unambiguous and understood by the target recipient, so again, strong controlled use of language is useful.

    (Having said the above skills re reading, writing and verbal communication often improve with time in a role)
