    Hi,

    I am currently taking a gap year and next year I was hoping to get onto a level 4 apprenticeship with rolls royce (engineering). On the website it says I need 3 a levels A*-B, but I only have 2 a levels: Physics-E and maths- D. How can I get onto a level 4 apprenticeship course without re taking my a levels?
    Is it possible to take level 3 course and then move straight on to a level 4 or is there an easier way?

    Thanks. So it is possible to do two apprenticeships one after the other?

    It is possible, but you have to remember, unless they accept equivalent qualifications (some don't, A-level maths is a requirement for some) even doing a level 3 won't gain you access.

    Resitting your A levels may be the quicker solution.

    Yes it is. I know many who have but normally they need to be similar subjects.


    Alternatively, go for the civil service fast track apprenticeship as a couple of the courses only need 5 gcses in english and maths. others need A levels
