Everyone should ease up on the OP, it's a legitimate question but it does show that they haven't researched the application process fully. As for the fact that she now can't apply because they posted on here...they can't apply for another five years (minimum) anyway, so posting fairly annoymously on a (pretty annoymous) internet help site shouldn't be too much of a obstacle.
They require you to have a degree with a classification of 2:1 or higher. In reality they're probably looking for certain subjects from certain universities - most likely languages, sciences, mathematics, computer science from the top 20 universities. Some degree/uni combinations will be more useful than others - if you apply with a first in Maths from Cambridge, they don't need too much further proof that you're bright.
In short A-levels don't matter a massive amount - they're a means to an end, the end being your degree. So choose what your good at, and therefore what you'll achieve most highly in. As others have said, they seem to take on a lot of bi-lingual people so learning a second/third language can't be a bad thing. Anyway, best of luck.
I've got a few mates who might help you jump the queue where applications are involved.
To get in touch with them just ring 118 118 and ask for a number for either james bond, pink panther, or Blue (from Blue's Clues)
hope this helps

You appear to be under the impression that posting your future job application for the Security Service, online and furthermore on TSR, is beneficial. Well I take it you wont be applying.
I never said it was benefitical in the slightest, only that I doubt it will harm her application seeing as she isn't even sure she's definitely going to apply, and we are unaware of her real identity
And um, no I won't be applying thanks... is that a point..?

I recommend applying to Pembroke College, Cambridge - the Master here is former head of MI6 Sir Richard Dearlove, and he's always running talks on security and politics issues!
Surely coming from Cambridge would be advantage enough for someone looking to join the security services
