    Probably, as I would still like to go to university for the fun of it or whatever.

    I would finish the course im doing. I would still go to university.

    I would still work in a place for a good 5 years after university for experience. Not just for something to put on my CV.

    The reason for this is I wish to build race engines for historic race cars.

    I've asked this question to a lot of people at school and most have said that they would not sit their A-level exams, even if they were the next day, if they'd won an x amount of money.

    Would you still sit your exams? How about in these situations:

    - won the money a month before A2 exams
    - won the money the night before your last A2 exam
    - won the money in your AS year
    - would you go on to go to university?

    Personally, if I've made all this effort up until now (end of A2s) I'd like to finish my exams and still try to do well in them. Maybe if I'd won it in my AS year though I'd have a think about whether I wanted to continue or not. And I'm not sure if I would still go to university or not.

    What about you?

    I'd still continue with A Levels and especially uni. However, I'd enjoy uni because I'm passionate about the subject and want more knowledge (and for the social aspect) rather than thinking "will I get a good job out of this?"
