Accounting AS/A2 Level *FEES PAYABLE* at Millfield School

Course description

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.

Course content

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

continuous prose answers.

Entry requirements

You must be at ease working with numbers. You

therefore have to be numerate and feel comfortable

handling percentages and manipulating numbers.

You should also enjoy logical problem-solving.


At least a grade B at GCSE Mathematics is essential;

experience shows that those with a C grade in GCSE

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.

Future opportunities

Many institutions offer subject courses, for example -

‘Accounting and Finance’; ‘Accounting and Business

Administration’ or ‘Accounting and Management

Studies’. The admission requirements of these

courses cater for a wide range of A level grades.


Success in any of these university courses opens up

career options not just in accounting, but in banking,

finance, commerce and management generally, or

even in running your own business. It is difficult to

think of any job that would not benefit from a

grounding in accounting, so it really keeps your

options open.
