Hi Nurul Athirah,
Do you mean a course in Accounting after SPM? If you are interested in pursuing Accounting, you will have to first enrol in a pre-university course. The minimum requirements for you to go into an Accounting programme are at least 3 credits in SPM, with one of the subjects being Mathematics. You will also require a pass in BM, English and Sejarah.
For more info about choosing pre-u courses, you can refer to the following links:

Hope this helps, good luck!
Hi Nur Ruqaiyah Nadhirah,
While there are many similarities between the two fields, the main difference is that those who work in Islamic finance typically focus on planning and directing the financial transactions for an organisation, while those who work in accounting focus on recording and reporting on those transactions. Islamic finance differs from traditional finance in terms of the system adopted by the banks; following Islamic laws of investment and risk-sharing.
For more information, do refer to the following links:

Hi Nur Illiyyin Jannah,
An actuary and an accountant typically deals with the same information and handles financial data. However, the main difference between the two professions is that actuaries are usually employed in the insurance industry, and directly deal with risk. They calculate the risk factors for occurrences such as fires, unemployment, accidents and other risks to give an accurate depiction of the risk that companies will take.
Accountants, on the other hand, monitors and records the flow of money through an organisation, and verify the accuracy of the money transactions to make sure that they are legal and follow guidelines.
Hope this is clear. Please don't hesitate to ask further questions!
