I would like to become an accoutant when I am older but I am struggling to work out what course or university would be the best route for me to take. I have currently just finished my GCSE's.

You can become an accountant and take many routes to get to your desitination like the Alevel route, BETEC diplomas ect

Alevels i would take the following areas to get into the field

Economics, Maths(for definate as there is allot of number crunching), Sciences,Business,

BETEC diplomas- i am not too sure about that but you are gna have to look at different colleges which offer that

Futher education

University-BA in Accountancy and Finance or Accountancy

-typically 3/4 yrs

-you need to look at the league tables(is the times/guardian) for different universities to see their position/statues

Apprentiship With a Company- this means that you work/get paid and earn a degree in accountancy at the same time. Again, you need to check out which companies gives you this service as I am not too sure

Overall, leave your options open as wide as possible and choose a course which you believe is right,rather than what your grandma, perhaps, says...

any questions/misconceptions tell me k...

i know its alot but i hope you found it helpful

Go onto the UCAS website and search for acountacy under course search. It shows you all the different accountacy courses you can do at what uni. You can also look at the entry requirments and other info. It is really useful.
