What you need to know

What will I study?

The course aims to teach the fundamentals of accounting. It is based on understanding the double entry system and learning how to prepare financial reports for sole-traders and limited companies. You will also look at the concepts guiding the preparation of these reports. In your second year, you will go on to look at the financial reports in greater detail as well as looking at what happens within an industrial setting, looking at how managers interpret financial statements to make costing and pricing decisions.

How will I be taught?

A Level Accounting uses a system of Flipped Learning where you will learn some basic facts before the lesson and then your teacher will develop this knowledge through individual and group activities. A Level Accounting uses a lot of filmed content to help reinforce concepts during your independent learning.

How will I be assessed?

This is a two-year linear A Level where you are examined on the whole syllabus at the end of the second year. To prepare you for external exams, you will carry out a programme of weekly tests, exam style assessments and Formal Progress Points where you will monitor your attendance, how hard you are working and your academic progress. All Year 1 students will progress through a Year 1 Gateway that will allow you to progress to Year 2.
