    Hiya, I'm looking for some advice.
    At the moment I am not sure what career I would like to go into, but the Financial sector does appeal to me.
    I'm looking at some grad schemes (very early on) and it requires minimum UCAS points mostly 320-340.
    I only achieved 300 I was expecting at least 360 so I was very dissapointed.

    Is it worth resiting a few A -level exams to help me out in the future?

    No, waste of time.

    Look at EY and Pwc as they have removed the ucas requirements from their grad schemes.

    The majority of them do though, especially the top ones.

    Pwc/EY are top employers. And yes I would agree the majority of them do, but it makes far more sense to apply to ones that don't and then move into the ones that do when you have job experience etc, than needlessly retake a levels.
