    I don't really know exactly what a stockbroker does but something tells me it's a damn good job which is very difficult to get into. Your GCSE grades are very good (although people like to winge here that you've only got a chance unless you get straight A*/As) but I'm not sure if they are good enough to go into a stockbroker job unless you're school has really failed you in which case your A-levels become top.

    hate to break your heart but the chances are unless you go on to do amazingly at A level (including A level maths) you wont have the opportunity to become a stockbrocker.

    Your best bet is to become a professional gambler (that is all a stockbroker is) yourself instead of working for a company. You can easily make 300-400k a year. You just have to get capital to start up, thats the problem.

    Well, work and try and beat the predictions - it's the best way to get what you want.

    My ideal job is to be an A&E consultant at the moment. Might change though - don't know if I could handle the strain.

    you dont know what a stockbroker does but it seems a 'damn good job'?

    your not sure if his gcses are good enough to 'go into a stockbroker job' ?

    sorry sweetie but what you said was babble ..... a stock broker is a slang name for an 'equity salesperson' , they need luck, a quick eye for cash flows, and quick thinking as well as a degree
    gcses they dont care about


    the job involves being on the phone, watching cash flows, and trying to make profit for the company

    the profit you make depends on how successful you are and of course the size of the PLC

    Er, yes it does matter what grades you get. Companies wont employ you in most cases unless you have a good degree.

    I said someone with a degree. To get on a tope degree course, you are more likely to get on with A*'s.

    it depends whether this dude is applying to be a model, or trying to get a proper job I suppose.

    Good looks and good grades help - they go hand in hand - one cannot go without the other in my opinion

    .
    That some serious pesimissm considering this person hasn't even taken thier GCSE's yet. I got a B in GCSE maths (two of them infact) and Im predicted an A at A2 maths. There is absolutely no reason why this person cannot become a stockbroker, apart from if they start listening to people like yourself. I would also point out that GCSE's all at A/A* are not a prerequisite for entry to a good university (my collection of B's proves this) and you don't actually require a wonderful degree to become a stockbroker anyway. An ability to spot trends and predict how things will turn out in a very variable situation would serve you just as well in conjustion with a 2:1 from a nice respectable uni!!!

    But surely that means there are thousands of exceptions to your rule that good-looking and clever go together? I thought they were meant to be opposites!
