    Helo i am hear to ask a question for my brother. He currently finished his degree in accounting finance and mathematics iwithn lancaster university 1st class honou degree and has completed an acca qualification the very next year. He wants to be a charted accountant. His gcses and A levels were holding him back to get into a good job. He had only 3 gcses and 3 btec level 2 and 1 or 2 a levels and 2 btecs level 3. He decided to do extra gcse in further math physics chemistry and business the first half ar of the year after his degree iandn like january and he has gotten As on all of them then he did a level futher math and accounting after another year getting Bs in them so he was done with his studies one and the half year after his degree in total. He had placements before when he was at uni and accounting part time job while he was doing his extra gcses and a levels. His dream was to work in one of the big four firms and i was wondering would he be at a disadvantage to other applicants and would they check when you did the exams. Also he resat his gcse english twice and past at his third attempt before he went to uni.
