    I am currently an first year A - Level student (Retaking AS) currently studying Maths, Further Maths, Sociology and History. I have also Got a D in AS Economics and an E in AS Media Studies. At the moment I am getting AAAC and thinking about going to university to study a MMath degree. However, is getting a degree really worth £37000+ or will it be better to get an apprenticeship instead? If I was to get an apprenticeship it would be in accountancy. What do you guys think?

    It depends on the person.

    Going to university can fast track your career in accounting. Apprenticeships means you will have to start off at the bottom and work your way up, but the advantage is you are trained whilst working and get paid, and the pay goes up after you qualified.
