Right.
I have always been interested in law and accountancy.
When i am older i think i want to become an accountant and take the ACA qualification.
Also take an accountancy degree at uni. (i was thinking Aston).
I was wondering if the subjects accounting, business and law would be a good choice at as-level and a-level.
i know they arn't too well respected but it's what i want to do.. do you think they will get me into uni?

They will.

But why not do an AAT course and find a company to work for who will sponsor you through it.. That would be a hell lot cheaper and easier for yourself.

I worked for a company called British Gypsum in the summer, in the Sales Ledger department and they had a number of young people aged around 17 - 22 who were sponsored students.. Many of which had nice cars etc..

yeah i've looked into the AAT course, but i'd rather have the experience of going to uni and living in the halls of residence/ living away from home.

try doing maths instead of one of those options. Those are all "soft" subjects, and some unis require Alevel maths, dunno specifically about aston though

i hated maths at gcse level but yeah i thought it would be a good idea to do it at alevel anyway but becasue i hated it sooo much i had to drop it. i got a B in gcse maths though and i have realised a lot of unis ask for maths but i have found some good ones that dont. eg Aston, Loughborough, Sheffield..

they just ask for a minimum of gcse B, so thank god for that

Even though you havent got the so called 'academic' subjects, but surely uni's will notice how well equiped you are for the world of finance unlike people who come to do business degree and haven't ever studied anything related to it.

I'm doing business & accounting like you, and I haven been also worried that unis will think im just a person who took the 'easy' alevels. As long as you get the good grades you can get into a few good redbrick unis that arent to bothered about soft alevels.

p.s. I know you want to go to uni for the experience but doing an ATT will definatly be a good option after college.
