I am a little confused about the apparently simple but tricky '2' in "Accountancy 2", when I had thought that it might be class 2, later my friend said it might also mean grade 2? And a third friend told me it should be course 2?
So could anyone help me with this? What is the best explanation or normal assumption to be applied in this context, in a British university?
The context is:
"I" am having a conversation with "she", my sister, who is a college student now and she's really smart. We are close.
Here is the sentence:
She looked at me, then removed the glasses. ‘You okay? You look like shit.’
‘So do you.’
‘I know. I went on this stupid detox diet. It’s given me hives.’ She reached a hand up to her chin.
‘You don’t need to diet.’
‘Yeah. Well . . . there’s this bloke I like in Accountancy 2. I thought I might start making the effort. Huge hives all over your face is always a good look, right?’
I sat down on the bed. It was my duvet cover.
