Oxford Home Schooling’s IGCSE Accounting course is one of the most practical of all the IGCSEs. It is ideal for anyone who dreams of running their own business or simply of managing their own personal finances in an effective way. It is also the ideal preparation for A-level Accounting.


Oxford Home Schooling’s Accounting IGCSE course is designed to prepare students for the Edexcel IGCSE in Accounting (4AC0) for  examination in June 2012, 2013 or 2014, the final year of this specification.


Assessment is by one written examination paper lasting 2 hours 30 minutes. There is no coursework.

Course Structure

The OHS course is designed to match the Edexcel 4AC0 specification, comprising four modules as follows:

  • Sources and recording of data
  • Verification of accounting records
  • The development of the accounting model
  • Final accounts

Although this course has been specifically written for students studying Accounting for IGCSE, the course can also be seen as a general introduction to Accounting. It can, therefore, be studied with advantage by students who are interested in obtaining a grounding in accounting or bookkeeping but who do not wish to take an examination.

Topics covered include:

  • Double-entry Accounts
  • The Trial Balance
  • Control Accounts
  • Assets and Liabilities
  • Capital and Revenue
  • Depreciation
