AAT intermediate vs ACCA
Hi, I'm very stressed by a dilema I'm facing regarding choice of accountancy qualification to pursue. I graduated from Newcastle University with a 3rd class honours degree in Maths and Statistics. I eventually decided I wanted a career in accountancy and started doing the AAT at intermediate level in February at System Group in Carlisle. It will take till March 2009 to complete intermediate level and then till March 2010 to complete technicians level. Yesterday a freelance accountant advised me that, as a maths and statistics graduate, I am studying well below my level, and it would save me a lot of time if I started studying ACCA in August. However, it seems I would get no exemptions as a maths and statistics graduate. I also have no accounts-related work experience and it has been suggested that I would have a better chance of getting my foot in the financial door as an AAT student. I am very confused by the conflicting advice I have been offered and would really appreciate any advice that could help clear things up. Thanks a lot.
