ive heard that as more and more people are getting degrees, when getting a job people are starting to look at Alevel grades as well. 1) is this tru? and 2) does anyone know if it would be better to get a high AS grade (e.g A) or a lower A2 grade (e.g C)??

I work in a solicitors firm and the lawyer sat near me is doing the interviewing process for Vacation scheme placements for university students and the general feeling i got when he was talking about it was that he wants to see consistent grades. They want to see at least a 2:1 from a relatively good university with good As grades AND good A2 grades. If someone got CCC at A level but is predicted a 1st for degree, then he would still question his A Level results. They don't seem to care about GCSE's (they didn't even ask for them on the application form). So, just make sure you get consistent grades. The best thing is to get as many units at As as possible because it would help subsidise slightly weaker grades at A2
