    I was just wondering if it is possible to do A levels, then do an apprenticeship to maybe gain experience and still go to university after? For example, could you do A levels in Maths, Physics etc., then after college, do some sort of apprenticeship in being a vehicle technician, to learn valuable skills that may be able to help you in the future, and then go to university after to do a degree in Automotive Engineering to become an engineer?

    I was also thinking that if this is possible, do people do it often or is it nearly unheard of? Thanks for any replies

    I did it! I passed my A-levels, took a deferred entry for university this year (or last year when i was at college) and did an apprenticeship from November - March. So it's totally possible, Pay is a bit ****, enough hours to make it up though. I wasn't enjoying it so I left, and am taking up another apprenticeship in something I'm more skilled in, best of luck

    I almost did this, but I left the apprenticeship early and just went to uni.
