Could I become an accountant by doing a ‘business management & accounting and finance’ degree? Like it combines both business management with accounting and finance?

Technically to become an accountant, you would need to do an accounting qualification with an accounting body e.g. ICAEW, ACCA, CIMA. The entry requirements are usually a level 3 qualification i.e. your A Levels are fine (you could have alternatively done AAT Level 3 & 4 to get exemptions on a number of modules).

The business management and accounting and finance degree would help you get the exemptions on modules in the accounting qualifications, albeit an expensive way to get them. You would only be allowed up to 9 exemptions depending on the modules you pick. Some of the accounting modules would require you to have 2 uni modules in order for you to get the exemption (if you only choose one of the 2, you won't be eligible for exemption on that particular module).
The places I would check first are the accounting bodies' websites to check their exemption calculator and look up the relevant modules for the particular course you intend to apply for.

Yes, you don't need to do an accounting undergraduate degree to become an accountant
