    So my gcses were 4A* 2A 3B 1C , A* in maths, geography,history,re and the 2A's were in English language and literature respectively. For A levels im studying Maths,Economics,History and for AS i got BBC in that order. My ucas predicted grades were AAB, however im looking to go down the appreniceship route.

    Im only applying to EY in the big 4, and outside of the big 4 i have found a few firms such as Crowe Clark Whitehill, MacIntyre Hudson and BT which have some really good apprenticeship schemes. The first 2 offer the CFAB which is the first 6 modules of the ACA qualification, and they offer full porgression towards the ACA afterwards depending on if you pass. The BT apprenticeship is offering the CIMA qualification.

    First off, what do you think my chances are of getting in to any of these apprenticeships? They all require a minimum of BBB achieved or expected, however i've heard the competition is quite high. If i were to get offers in theory, which is better the CIMA or ACA ones and why? Im not entirely sure of what kind of accounting i want to go into, but both are highly regarded and respected so which do you think i should go for?
