Accounting for Leaving Certificate

Accounting is examined at both Higher and Ordinary level. Both involve one three hour exam. The exam paper is made up of three sections:

Sections 1 & 2 – Financial Accounting

Section 3 – Management Accounting.

Questions must be answered from all sections of the exam paper.


Accounting is a dynamic and challenging career that can take you to the height of your abilities. Accountancy is a recognised qualification that can be used abroad.

Accountants can work in a wide variety of finance roles for many types of organisations, including manufacturing companies, local and central government, the health service, banks and insurance companies, actuarial studies, marketing and private accountancy firms. It would also be an important subject choice for those thinking of starting their own business.
