I'm thinking about getting another bachelor's degree in the future because the kind of education and job I want in the future would make me better equipped (It's a niche industry and specific degrees for this job isn't avaliable) I don't mind doing two degrees but I just wanted to know will they look at my A level grades (they're alright grades), as it is a bachelor's degree wouldn't it make sense to look at my A level grades only (the second one would be law related).
I'm only asking because at this point when I seek to take a second degree (if I do) my uncle reckons they'll just look at the 2:1 or above I'd have in the degree I already have at that point and not my A levels, but idk. Some people told me to do a masters but that's for wayyyyyy in the future. I'm focused on this second degree situation. Help 😕
If I get a second bachelor's degree will they look at my A levels? watch

This is an interesting question, you might have better luck asking the uni themselves. I do know a guy who did his undergrad degree at Bangor, and then another Undergrad degree at Lancaster, and he didn't have any A levels.

Could you tell me what you did study at university, and what your second degree would be in? For some degrees, it would be better to do a masters (less time and money spent) as others have told you, but it does depend on the subject area itself.
Some degrees do have transferrable skills (for example, I know accountancy schemes take on graduate from a wide range of disciplines, not just maths and finance), so it may be that a second degree isn't the way forward. You would need to demonstrate an interest in the job, and maybe try to get some relevant experience to boost your application. You don't give a lot of info so it is up to you to make the judgement.
It depends on the sort of career field you are applying in as to whether they look at your A-levels. For some careers, and some graduate schemes, they do look at your other grades, but most look at your most recent qualification as well as your work experience.
