I am close to leaving my last year at school and now how to decide what route I want to take. I am almost certain that I want to become a chartered accountant but do not know the best route into it.
An apprenticeship seems the best for me because I would prefer working while learning, also the fact that you get paid is a big advantage. Although a lot of them require 5 A-C's and I am predicted 10 A*-Bs. I don't want to be going down a career which may be low level after working hard to achieve good GCSE's and there may be higher levelled routes.
A Levels are the other option but I have been advised by a friend who is an accountant just to do an apprenticeship as employers would rather you go straight into learning. The main thing for me is to achieve the highest I am capable of and get the best job I can.
