That is interesting as entry requirements for Birmingham are AAB compared to AAA for Cass
Out of interest where would you put Queen Mary University of London BSc Accounting and Management? Thanks

Yes I want to live in London, have done Maths A level and don't want to do year in industry.
I am considering exemptions from the ACA qualification for university choice also - King's is a new course and therefore doesnt' have any at the moment but the name is prestigious so might be worth more?

How many exemptions does each course give? Sometimes its a huge difference so might be an issue. In general I'm not so convinced by chasing ACA exemptions (ACCA is a different matter) as the firms pay for training and give time off to study - and the bigger firms change policy regularly and often limit the number of exemptions their trainees can claim.

Anyway - I would tend towards courses which demand A level maths if you have it. There can be a big difference in the way the finance sections are taught. For that reason I would heavily lean towards Kings. Have you considered LSE?

Exemptions are:City 8 AAASurrey 8 AABRoyal holloway 6 AAB-ABBBirmingham 6 AABLse 5 AAAQmul 0 AAAKings college london 0 AAAI have looked at LSE but worried its too difficult do you think kings would be the same level?
I don't know - the LSE course seems to a somewhat different emphasis to most courses so I guess its a question of taste? I'd be surprised if Kings don't get any exemptions - have you mailed them and the ICAEW/ ICAS to ask?
