I'm in year 10 and I'm choosing my year 11 subjects.

I'm considering doing VCE Accounting 3/4 in year 11. I've already completed units 1 and 2 this year, and my marks have been quite good but to be honest I don't have a passion for the subject and it's not very stimulating.

Should I put in some elbow grease and finish it off or would it be wiser to choose something else?

I want to get into medicine so my ATAR score is quite important to me. What's your advice?

Hi Sally,

I teach accounting units 1 through to 4 and I do love teaching accounting.

Although you have good marks for units 1 and 2, I feel that you need to be passionate about your subject to achieve the best possible marks.

Accounting is not a 'stimulating' subject as some others are, but if you have a head for figures, like working with numbers and have an interest in finance then units 3 and 4 is great.

Accounting is scaled up marginally.

However, my advice to you would be, that you complete a subject that you really like, are passionate about and comes with a teacher that you like would be a better way to go as you will enjoy putting in those necessary hours to get a top enter score for VCE.
