Which a levels are you taking? Which do you enjoy?

I'm currently doing CBSE XII, it's the Indian equivalent of A - Levels.
My current subjects are: Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Entrepreneurship & English.
I wish to pursue Bsc. Accounting & Finance.
Based on the module information, I feel I might prefer studying Bsc. Management ( Acc. & Finance) as the subjects are better oriented for the career I wish to pursue.

I'm not sure about the difference between the courses tho, cuz most of the other universties only have Bsc. Accounting & Finance as an option.

Sounds like the management course is the one for you!

The difference between the BAEcon at Manchester for A+F applicants, and from what I can see the BSc Management route also is that the courses are much more flexible and allow you to take broader options or focus on non accounting topics should you find you don't enjoy studying accounting at university.

The BA Econ is very much a social sciences course so great for people who enjoyed social sciences at high school but want to study accountancy for career reasons. Its a get out of jail card if they don't like the accountancy route. Looks like the management course offers the same but with management and business related subjects.
