Business/Economics/Accountancy

I got a Disitinction in Business in the JC last year bust as we all know that wasn't a clear representative of it. I am good with theory but I'm not sure this will apply to the LC as I learned everything off the book with a few days before the exam. I am not so prominent with maths but I think in accountancy there isn't too many difficult sums. I would like to know is it easier to learn off accountacy than the other two? And what would be easier business or economics? Thanks

I would definitely recommend business over economics, quite similar to JC business and fairly straightforward.

If you are good at rote learning do business. You need to undertand the entire concept of macro and micro economics so stick to your strengths

Accounting is very methodical, no difficult maths that can't be done on a calculator. I would say unless you have an interest in understanding why figures go where you will struggle to achieve high marks but I love it! Business is pretty much wrote learning, it can be boring but easy enough to achieve high. I do both by the way!

It really depends on the person. I do Economics and Business. If I personally had to pick one of them it would definitely be Economics. The course is shorter and I find it more enjoyable. It's more about understanding the information than learning it off. Business is more heavy on detail. There's a project for Economics which I've heard a lot of people complain about but I haven't actually done it myself. There are some graphs in Economics too so keep that in mind. Business is a great subject if like it enough.
