Do A level grades matter when applying for postgraduate masters?

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I've been predicted A*AB at A level and my grade requirements for uni are AAB for Biomedical Science. However, I've been working towards A*A*A this year. After a bad chemistry exam, I think I'm just going to meet my predicted.

    Provided that I get in to my course, will higher or bear minimum A level grades make a difference once completing my degree in terms of employment / applying for a masters?



    A levels make no difference - its your undergrad degree result that counts.

    They will go on your CV though so you still want to work hard on them.
