    I'm likely to not achieve ABB or my firm choice which is BBB and i might actually get BCC or even BCD. Now exams are over i've been looking at alternatives to university

    I've found a apprenticeship working for Volkswagon as a Product Advisor. I was thinking it may be worthwhile and its close to where i live! The due date is tomorrow so i need to apply now or it's too late!

    So lemme ask...Is it illegal or unethical to apply for an apprenticeship when i'm applying for university?

    Depends on the apprenticeship of course, some don't ask for A-levels, just GCSEs so no problem there, some have an option to put in your predicted A-level grades if you haven't taken them yet. Have a look at the application form for the vacancy.

    Just apply, A Level results pending.

    Even if you got offered the job, you could still turn it down should you get into uni.
