I'd personally go with business, accounting for me was much harder and much easier to make mistakes in, also very easy to make costly mistakes in accounting but if you like working things out over learning a lot of defintions then accounting might be for u

Business is very focused on learning definitions but if you have a logical mind and are slightly business minded you will find it fairly easy. Not sure about accounting but heard it is difficult.

I do both business and accounting and i think accouting is better to be honest. Business is boring and there is a lot of information to learn but accounting is hard to understand

Buiness course is very long and detailed, but I find it very interesting. Accounting is mainly maths, once you grasp it it is just pratice. I personally like both, it just depends whether you like learning a lot of theory or like doing accounts. (Also considor what other subjects you are doing, and whether they are very theory based)

In Accounting once you learn to do and understand each question, revision will only involve practicing a question before it all comes back to you. I also enjoy business but it is an extremely detailed subject that can become overwhelming especially with other theory heavy subjects. So if you enjoy both business and accounting i would personally recommend accounting

Accounting is very easy to predict which lessens your workload the closer you get to thr exam

Accounting has one of the highest H1 rates (but also fail rates) and studying accounting is alot more enjoyable than other subjects as there’s not much learning off involved, I’d 100% recommend doing accounting

Ahaha accouting is a funny one. I do both Business and Accouting, I used to dislike accouting but sis, all you need to do is pracice practice practice. It taks time to understand fully, it also low key depends on the teacher you get :unamused: i had a briliant teacher in 5th year and then she retired... then i started hating acouting ahaha, but nevertheless I stuck my head down and learned those topics. Accouting is actually one of the subjects to most likely get a H1 in also, but be weary don't fall behind in terms of topics. The paper can also be slightly perdicted, as you can legit ignore some of the topics in favor of others. If you like accounts and practical work do Accounting. As for Business, I enjoy business too. It is a very theory based subject, but it's legit common sense ahahaha, if you have a good mind for remembering definitions do business, less of a hassle to be honest. If you are conflicted because of college courses, business is the best route because you get a taste of eveyrthing, even a bit of accouting, some marketing, and such. You really do learm a lot more benneficial information in business. It is less of a practical subject and more of a memorisation subject. But sis, follow your gut feelings! And if you feel you made the wrong choice, switch, or take an extra class outside of school, and focus on that subject more than the one you chose. (Sorry if my spelling is atrocious, not very good at it ahaha.) I hope this helped.
