    I have just finished my A levels and am now waiting for the results.

    I have got an aca training contract with a small firm, beginning in August, depending on my a levels. The company have said I need to fulfil the ICAEW entry requirements. Therefore they haven't given be a specific amount of UCAs points.

    I have looked on the ICAEW website and it said 2 a level passes and 3 gcses A-C. It then says most firms will ask for between 240 and 300 points. Therefore, do I assume I need a minimum of 240 points or just 2 a level passes?

    Any advice would be appreciated as I'm so confused!

    2 A level passes and 3 GCSE A-C seems more logical.
