from what I've heard, it will help you, but not very much.

they are not prerequisites, but, it is still a really good idea to take them. My teacher told me that if you are taking accounting in university, they go through the grade 11 and 12 material within 2-3 weeks.

Not true, unless your high school accounting teacher is terrible. As far as I know, every "Intro to Financial Accounting" or similar course (usually found in first year or sometimes second year of business programs) covers everything in high school accounting (maybe going a little bit more in-depth) as well as cash flows and bonds. Some schools (such as mine) cover cash flows and bonds, but most don't. Usually those are the two "new" concepts for students and the most difficult part of the course for most people. But since I covered both in high school, there was nothing "new" really for me.

Every first year business course (and sometimes second year courses) assume no prior knowledge.

That being said, it will be easier if you are familiar with the content before it's covered.

Our accounting prof reminded us that the mark breakdown between those that took accounting and those that didn't showed no correlation, fwiw.
