    Usually, salary earned by graduates > salary earned by people without a degree.

    I was wondering if this applied to people who'd achieved level 3 qualifications? Does having good A-Level/BTEC/other results (but no degree) have a noticeable affect on a persons income vs someone who stopped at GCSE, everything else being the same?

    I ask because, unlike graduate jobs, I've never seen a job advertisement that said applicants needed A-Level (or equivalent) standard education and nothing higher. Is the qualification valued by any employers on its own (for any subject/job combination)?

    I can't contribute anything to the discussion as I haven't started work yet; it's just something I thought about when looking at part time jobs for when I start university, but I would like to read some more experienced people's thoughts on the subject.
