Ordinary Level Subjects
We know choosing your subjects can be a stressful time in your life. So, let us help you with understanding the process. We will guide you on your accounts journey - maybe you will like it, or maybe you will want to ask some questions. We're simply aiming to make your life a little easier.
Choosing accounts as an Ordinary Level (O-Level) subject will give you a ‘taste’ as you learn the fundamentals of the subject, during which time you will be introduced to the core concepts. Accountancy as a career path gets more and more interesting the more you progress and advance, providing you with a huge amount of employment opportunities. You will also learn ‘financial literacy’, that is, a skill which will help you in your life now, such as when saving up to buy a bike, and in the future, such as learning how to manage your salary. These ‘money skills’ will help you in any job!
You may choose accounts as a subject to study in senior school (typically known as Years 9, 10, and 11), which will lead you to sit for accounts as an O-Level exam.
Although it is recommended to get your accounts O-Level to continue with your journey at Advanced Level (A-Level) standard, do not get discouraged if it is not possible to choose and study accounts at your school right now. You may get the opportunity to study accounts later on.
However, if you do have the opportunity, start studying accounts in senior school so you start learning and building your ‘blocks’ from the foundations.
Grades are important, but they are not everything! Do keep in mind that the grades obtained in your O-Level exams will influence your future choices when selecting a Post-Secondary/Sixth Form school.
More information is available for students thinking about their Advanced and Intermediate Level Subjects.
We are organising info sessions for Year 8 and Year 11 students which will be taking place at school during the current scholastic year. We will try our best to visit every school to meet you, answer your questions, and show you the opportunities that await you. If we have not been to your school yet, let us know.
