A Level: Accounting at The City of Leicester College

Course description

For more information on the content of this course please contact the college

Entry requirements

The minimum requirement is five grade C's at GCSE.  Two of which should be Mathematics (preferably at B grade, but this is negotiable) and English.  Previous knowledge of the subject is not needed.

The course is not part of the professional exams to qualify you as an accountant, these can be taken after you’re A Levels. The A Level will give you a sound foundation in the subject and this will make progression to become a professional accountant easier. You will need to have an interest in this particular area.  You should also have some interest in the business and finance world in general.

You will need a positive attitude and a commitment to hard work and solving problems.


The course is very much based around students being given the relevant information and then doing questions to test and apply their knowledge in an accounting situation.  This still lends itself to a number of different teaching styles and approaches. The course is very student centred.

All modules will be examined in June of year 12 if doing the AS, and of year 13 if doing the A Level
