    Basically; I'm in year 12 taking Accounting, business, finance and English language, I'm stuck in between going uni and taking a finance related degree or just going straight out and trying to get a job?

    I'll probably come out with 2 Bs and 1 c at AS

    How can you already predict your AS grades?
    Have you looked at the job market? Seen any jobs that you like? It's a big decision - be sure to do ya research.

    Maybe stay and do A2 and see how that goes, while doing more research into degree courses and job requirements. I don't know much about the finance sector but I'm thinking it all depends on what kind of career or job you want in the future? Generally higher paying jobs want degrees but you might be alright working your way up?

    I am really into sports and things like that, so I think going to a uni and playing in the uni teams and maybe even getting a scholarship is something that appeals to me, the only thing that is a con of uni is money, the money I will have to owe and the money I could be making while I'm at uni

    I think you need to look and see if your subjects are even accepted for business/finance/accounting degrees anywhere before you start going on about sport scholarships.

    I don't know for sure but I'd imagine a lot of finance/accounting courses (basically anything in that general area) require A level maths, which you don't have.

    When looking online there is nothing that states that you require a level maths.. Just the generic 'BBC' or 'AAB'

    I'm just saying that you should check on the individual websites. Bath's website clearly states that it requires AAA, to include an A In A2 maths, for accounting and finance, for instance. If no such statements are made on the uni website then you can pretty safely assume that no specific subjects are needed.
