Accounting For LC

I didnt do business for Junior Cert. Is it a good idea to do Accounting for Leaving Cert and is it hard?

im in 5th year and there are about 3 or 4 people in my class who didnt do JC business (out of a class of 20). my friend says accounting is quite challenging for him cos he didnt do JC business. for the first two weeks of school in september my teacher (i dont know if other teachers do this but) did lessons on a brief overview of JC business (the accounting part) to refresh our memories but also as an introduction to the few in the class who hadnt done JC business, and i think this was very helpful for them i think if you have a good teacher and are willing to work hard at it, accounting is defo possible to do after not doing JC business and you shouldnt have many problems,

I'm in 5th year doing Leaving Cert accounting and didn't do JC Business. Personally I don't find it that hard so far but I do have a good teacher. At the start of the year I told him I didn't do JC business and there are others in my class who are the same. So if you're good with numbers and logic, I would say go for it

hey sabrina i think u should do it only if u have a true passion for numbers cuz tbh if u just do it for 'easy points' or like 'i heard it wasn't that bad' then ur gonna lowkey suffer. i did it for JC, and it was always my fave part of the course, so i'm doing it as an eighth sub at home. so plz, consider how much u rlly need it, or how much u want to do it in uni before making a choice. just sayin'

It's completely different to JC and easy to do well in. It isn't not a hard subject unless you struggle to use a calculator

I did JC Business but had a terrible teacher who didn't really do any of the accounting on the course. I should have gone for Business instead because now I'm struggling in Accounting in the sixth year. My accounting teacher doesn't care if you did either and she isn't very good at teaching. It's not an easy subject by far, it is basically all memorisation and if you don't have a good teacher who's willing to explain stuff to you in a really simple way than you're not going to know what you're doing.
