Hi Ali,
Intermediate is really important for anybuddy before entering into any stream...in that way one can get broader choices...u can even then join CAT,CA or can pick ur degree...

I would advise you to go for A' levels, <b>IF</b> you positively intend to go for a UK based quaification which draws rather heavily upon analytical skills, which you might need to develop.

A' Levels might take one year minimum if done privately, two years at an institution, but trust me, it will be worth it. Your analytical skills will develop and you will be more 'ready' to take on a demanding qualification. You only need two subject passes (i.e Grade E minimum which is usually around 50%) at A' Levels to enter directly into ACCA Part 1, which can be cleared in one attempt spanning 6 months from registration. Conversely, if you did Intermediate, you will still have to do CAT, which takes a minimum of one year, before you can enter ACCA Part II. So in the end no time is actually lost, but you still end up gaining more in terms of skill. For A' Levels I would recommend that you take up Accounting, Business Studies, and a one choice from either Economics, Law or Mathematics depending on your personal aptitude. It will be worth it. =)

If any of the facts in my above post are wrong, feel free to correct.

If you decide on the accountancy route I would advise chartered accountancy(Ultimately) instead of CIMA or ACCA. That's because CIMA tend to specialise in running the finance department of a business and ACCA have very low pass rates. Chartered accountants often specialise in corporate finance, valuing a company that is to be floated, for example or undertaking due diligence to be sure that there isn't a black hole in the accounts. The other types of accountant can do this too but they do so less often than chartereds. (ICAEW). The only downsides of chartered accontancy are that they are not as international as ACCA or CIMA and their entry qualifications are usually higher.

I guess that you may have been advised on the other two because they tend to need lower A-level grades to gain entry. ICAEW members tend to want a B and two Cs minimum at A-level.

Yeah u can do A Levels after Matric...its difficulty depends on the subjects that u will take...for Accountancy stream u ll have to take accounting,economics,business studies and the like subjects...but if ur mathematics is good then nothing will be tough...

i think u should go for CAT and then ACCA.
SAM is right dont waste your time as time is money, but first analyze your self can you do ACCA or not, cuz after you enter this path there is no turning back.
