    I have recently received a job offer at GT for public sector audit but I'm not sure about taking it. They used to do a CIPFA-ICAS qualification, but this year are just doing CIPFA and i'm not sure how valuable this qualification is.
    I just wanted suggestions about whether its worth taking a year out and reapplying to top 4 firms + BDO and GT next year to get ACA grad scheme or if this job will offer good progression.
    I should graduate with a 1st from a top 15 uni doing a STEM subject + 340 UCAS points. What would be my better option?

    Accept the offer. Everyone is fixed on graduate scheme and what they fail to recognise is that experience is key. What will taking a year out do for you? In the future you can aways work for a big 4 firm without the hassle of getting on to graduate role.
