    Hi so If I don't get into university(well actually I'd like a job now as I am so bored..)
    What jobs/apprenticeships could I get with these qualifications( I want to earn a decent wage, at least a good amount when I am older ).
    I will have by august
    A/B no lower than a B in A level maths(though I am sure I got an A)
    B/C in economics ( fairly confident I got a B just want to be safe )
    D in further maths (messed that right up)
    I'd like to work in finance, or something financial, any idea's ?
    Maybe I should just get some work experience at an accountants, there's a few of them near me, problem is I live in the middle of no where and can't drive.

    You can apply for school leaver apprenticeships at banks and they will take you on. At the moment i'm doing a summer internship with Royal Bank of Scotland and it's fully paid and they've offered me a Saturday job when I go back to school. I'm not interested in doing anything in Finance as a career but it's good for the experience and have something to fall back on in case my main career choice doesn't go to plan.
