    I didn't realise that they offered triple AVCEs - I thought AVCEs were either single or double (6 or 12 units) equivalent to 1 or 2 A levels.

    My Mum does graduate recruitment and they do use A-levels, but once you're established in your line of work and have more experience they become less relevant.

    Some employers do have minimum A-Level requirements, so yes, they are still relevent.

    just wondering. i mean if some1 got 3 e's at A level but still got a place at university will the bad A levels still contribute to their reputation if they have a degree
    a levels do still matter. the first thing employers look at - or at least within my fathers workplace - is their a-levels and then their degree

    It depends if you want to do a graduate training programme or not and on the job. Certain jobs access for a certain amount of UCAS points such as 260.

    For some jobs I doubt it would matter to much.

    i would say 3 Es are better than nothing. You can still get into uni with those grades as they are technically a pass.

    for example in medicine, everyone graduates with the same qualification, and albeit the performances in interview and experience will be important, surely alevels may have some impact on whether someone is more likely to get a job than someone else???
    except virtually all med school graduates will have extremely similar Alevels

    Not true! Most peeps that go in at graduate level tend to have lower A-Level grades than those who go in at school leaver level... Also there are an abundence of WAMP courses now where the entry requirements are BCC/CCC.

    'Normal' undergrad medicine courses have between 5 and 35% mature and graduate students on them though
