    I want to do a ICT related apprenticeship after I finish my GCSEs, as I want a career in that industry, and I was wondering how hard would it be to get a apprenticeship? Would it be harder to get into college or about the same? Would there be more competition? Also if I wanted to go to university after that if I don't get offered a job, would I still be able to as an advanced apprenticeship is equivalent to two A levels?

    My friend did an apprenticeship after completing her GCSEs with either an IT or engineering company. She found it fairly easy finding somewhere but she did get good grades so that's probably what put her at an advantage.

    Would you say getting mostly B's more or less are a good grade for this?:curious:

    As long as you have at least 5 GCSEs including Maths and english I think you'll be fine
