Subject Choice LC accounting ?!?

I never was taught how to do the first question in junior cert (the main accounting part) i think it was book-keeping. But i enjoyed the trading, profit..... accounts, club accounts and the budgets (noy sure if they are accounting). I want to have a different style subject as ill be doing biology and history which are both heavy learning subjects. Should i try accounting for LC.

Actually it wasnt book keeping, it was the books of first entry, ledger and trial balance question.

It might suit you as the question 4 layout is used often. Don't expect it to be a really light, easy subject but if you enjoyed it for Junior Cert you'll probably be ok with it.

I do history and geography as my other subjects, would recommend accounting as it is nice to have a break from the heavy learning and just practice accounting exam questions. I only did trading P&l and budgets for my junior cert so im sure you'd be grand. The exam is also reasonably predicable which is good bonus

It is a very practical subject so if you like doing out qus and working with numbers i think you will enjoy it

Would reccomend Accounting to literally everyone - especially if your other subejcts are content-heavy (mine are History and Home Ec and ofc both very heavy). Accounting is hard at first but in sixth year it gets a lot easier - I used to be a H5/6 student in fifth year and now I'm H1/2. There's some solid online resources like David Wilson and ExamSupport that are fantastic for worked solutions too! There's a reason why it's the subject with the most A grades - it's the most predictable.

knowing the book keeping question is very very very useful in understand accounting. dont expect accounting to be the straightforward trading profit account, club accounts and budgets because it really isnt. im not trying to put you off accounting but pick accounting expecting is trading profit and loss accounts

Be willing to put a lot of time into it. It's extremely time-consuming. If you have good teachers do it but be sure of the teachers and the time you're willing to put into it.

i find it to be an extremely interestiny subject. it requires a lot of practice to succeed in but if you are willing to practice a few exam questions a week then you will be flying by june. similarly it is useful if you do theory heavy subjects (i do business bio and home ec), so i found accounting was a nice break from the other learning subjects.

I didnt do business for Junior Cert and I love accounting. It's not that difficult if you regularly practice questions and try to understand the reasons behind it.

I would say definetly to accouting. As other people have mentioned accounting is content-heavy in what you have to learn which is especially useful for me as I already have so much to learn for history, biology and music. I have gotten straight H1s all year (5th year) and I would say the most important thing is to practice as many questions as you can and when you are first being taught the topic make sure you know where every figure comes from (ask if you are unsure). You only need to understand the basic principles of the ledgers (for every credit you have a debit) and other than that of you enjoyed the other accounting topics at junior cert and you like working with numbers I would say definetly do accounting

it depresses me
Not worth it unless you find it interesting (which is rare) and are willing to input enough time.
