Switching from Business Management to Accounting?
katiekins VCE Accounting3

I'm in Year 10 at the moment. Right now I'm taking math methods, further maths, chemistry, biology and and business management. Would I be better off switching business m for accounting? I have no interest in business management and just picked it cause i couldn't do psychology. Apparently the accounting class are really behind. Is it worth it?

Hey there Katie, (I am really sorry did not realise I was going to type so much but hopefully you read it from future me regretting like decisions) hopefully if you still have not made the decision this will be helpful. I am a year 12 student who is doing both Business Management and Accounting so should be able to help. All I can say is that unit 1 and 2 business management is boring as all hell and completely different from Unit 3 and 4, since instead of having to pretty much reword definitions like in unit 1 and 2, you actually have to use financial and non-financial indicators to analyse and determine what the best decision is for a theoretical businesses should take.

(here is the rest since character limit i did not know about) That is mainly in unit 3 area study 3 as unit 3 area study 1 is mainly just revision for unit 1 and 2 so pretty boring but area study two goes into detail on how to motivate and explores different types of theories such Lawerence 4 drive theory and Maslow's hierarchy of needs. That is all I will say now instead of info-dumping, the last point on business is that there is a big jump in what to do for the subject, but if applying decision making in business is not your cup of tea then Accounting might have what is for you. Accounting for me is quite interrelated with Business Management, as they both use financial and non-financial information to advise the owner on what is the best decision to make. The big difference is that in Accounting you will be required to do reports and records which can be quite hard without the necessary maths skills to interpret the data, but since you seem to be a maths orientated kid looking at your subjects you should be fine, I do not know what unit 1 and 2 will be like since the study design for accounting changed this year and the content has changed allot which would explain why the accounting class is really behind since the teacher has to relearn a lot of the content but should not be a problem next year. It can be quite fun since if you have an obsession (much like myself) in fixing mistakes of dumb people who do not how to use a keyboard or a calculator.

(oml this character limit will be the death of me) On the plus side, Accounting scales up instead of down, unlike Bussiness Management which guys down like 2/4 points (if you do not know about scaling DW since you will get it crammed into your head sooner rather than later) all I can say is Business is pretty much the easier version of accounting but business management looks at the people rather than how to improve the cash and profit of a business. Hopefully, this was helpful use to you (instead of wasting my time) peace out V
