hi I want to become an accountant the a levels I've chosen are
economics
English literature
accounting

I chose not to do maths as it's not a subject km the best at and I've been told by many that A level maths is very difficult.I've been predicted grade 6 (B) in the subject but don't want to take the risk of having it as an a level.I however love English literature and therefore chose it instead of maths .

Are the options I've picked a good set ??
I'm not trying to get into top end uni's maybe something like Birmingham uni or Leicester but wanted to know if these would be an good choice?

Yes, those A levels are fine. Honestly, pick A levels you love and enjoy. There are no subject requirements for accounting unless you are applying to the very top unis LSE or Warwick in which you need Maths A level . I am in Year 13 and have applied for accounting and finance. I did Maths, Economics and Geography. Honestly, Maths A level has been difficult and a waste of time for me. I keep on getting D's and E's when my other subjects are straight A's and B's. I thought A level maths was needed for accounting (it helps with your uni application), but is not at all essential. I have loved Economics and Geography though (especially Economics) and wish I took a different subject as opposed to Maths. English lit is a really good choice for any degree choice as writing is required in many professions. Accounting A level will only make your application even stronger. Good luck with your A level choices and hope all goes well for you

perfectly decent, especially as you leave Eng Lit open as a degree in a subject you like.

You might also consider the use of maths exam at a level or as to keep up to speed with numeracy.
