    Accounting for management or Business and management? Which would be better in terms of prospects or are they pretty similar?

    Also If I pick Accounting for management I'd have to resit math to get a B, that isn't really a problem, I know I can do it. Other than the B in math gcse BAM and AFM both have the same requirements (ABB-AAB)

    There's also Law and management at Aston which wants a B in maths which sounds quite interesting but I think it would start to close the business oppertunties as it's mainly foccused on Law. I'm still studying AS levels but I need to figure out which course I'm aiming at as there would be no point resiting math for BAM.

    Btw I might have to go to a college to resit math as my school is only doing foundation resits for people who didn't achieve a C but I might be able to get in for higher.

    Like to hear for anyone really but especially people currently studying them courses.

    Thanks.

    Just got an offer for BAM at Aston.
    The course looks really good! I would go for that =)

    But maybe you should retake anyway
    if you know that you can get the B there isn't much of a problem.

    I changed my mind so many times with what degree to study, and if you retake the maths, you will have more options open.

    For example, one of my friends didnt resit GCSE maths as he thought he wouldnt need a B, but now is struggling to find a good geography degree without it at a decent uni.

    I can get a B but I don't want it to interfere with revision for AS exams unless I really need to. I was going to resit math next year but now I think about it, I'll have more exams and harder exams plus I may have AS resits.

    If you are going to retake. Do it this year.
    Nobody i knew struggled with doing a retake as well as january modules.

    Tbh as long as you managed okay at GCSE, where you had 9 or 10 exams, you will be more than prepared, as long as you put the work in.
