Accounting AS/A Level at Finchley Catholic High School

Course description

This course aims to develop a knowledge and understanding of the purposes of accounting, its concepts and techniques, including an appreciation of the effects of economic, legal and technological change on accounting, and of the social implications of accounting decisions. Throughout the course you will develop the skills of communication, numeracy, presentation, analysis, interpretation, application and evaluation of accounting information.

The course will suit students with an inquiring mind, prepared to use the skills they learn to analyse real financial data that businesses produce. Those with good numeracy skills will find the course more accessible. At the end of the course, you will have an understanding of key accounting skills and concepts, which will be a strong foundation for a career in financial and management accounting. However, the analytical, decision-making and problem-solving skills you develop will be helpful for progression in whatever field you go into.
