    Hi Mahdi

    why don't you consider studying CIMA or ACCA that would give you better career chances i think.

    I have never heard of anyone gaining direct entry into the final year of a degree course unless they were simply transferring from somewhere else (having completed the second year there), and even then that's very rare. Direct entry onto the second year is far more likely. I found that quite a bit of the second year was also fairly straightforward because of my existing knowledge from the AAT.

    Not all universities will allow you direct entry onto the second year of an accounting course, but some will. The list on the website is a guideline- I would suggest you approach their admissions offices directly. That's what I did and I was able to get onto the second year, but still had to apply through the usual UCAS method.

    I had offers from University of East Anglia, De Montfort (Leicester), Anglia Ruskin and Essex- but I was only looking in the East Anglia/East Midlands area anyway.
