Personally speaking, it depends on your ability to grasp the knowledge. It also depends on if you learn things off well or not. Business requires you to know a lot of information at the top of your head while accounting requires you to put a lot more problem-solving skill in action. 

Accounting has the highest honours rate of the three business subjects with 78 per cent of students managing a C3 or higher in the subject over the past three years. A large proportion of these students were awarded As. Last year, 21 per cent of higher-level students achieved an A2 or higher.

Whereas with business, it is by far the most popular of the business subjects, with 71 per cent of students managing an honour. Of the almost 12,000 students who sat the subject at higher level in 2012, 11 per cent achieved an A2 or higher, while 22 per cent passed the subject but didn’t make the C3 grade.

Obviously these are older stats.
