Accounting AS/A2 Level *FEES PAYABLE* at Millfield School
AS Accounting introduces the ideas at the centre of
accounting theory and practice. It applies these ideas
to a number of different business structures, such as
sole traders and partnerships, and shows how they
record the proﬁt earned in the year and the items
owned and owed at the year-end.
A2 Accounting develops a greater depth of
knowledge across a wider range of business situations.
The AS level consists of two units covering:
• Accounting Principles
• Accounting Applications
The A2 level consists of two units:
• Company Accounts and Interpretation
• Management Accounting
All are tested using compulsory questions
requiring both numerical responses and

therefore have to be numerate and feel comfortable
handling percentages and manipulating numbers.
You should also enjoy logical problem-solving.

Mathematics struggle with Accounting. The ability to
express ideas ﬂuently and concisely on paper is
important, so at least a grade C in GCSE English
Language is essential.
Assessment is by examination only.
