Hiya!

Most well-paid jobs often do require a University degree, so A-Levels may be required. Of course, there are many other options like higher apprenticeships, so research what interests you by using the UCAS website, University websites etc.

Furthermore, salaries are also dependent on where you live. For instance, I would get a lower salary compared to someone in London because the standard of living is so much more (housing, utilities, etc are more expensive)

I have found a website that might be useful to you. When looking for what you want to do in the future, don't let salaries affect you. Of course, having money is important, but enjoying what you do is, in my opinion, more so. ( https://www.prospects.ac.uk/job-profiles )

Things like Medicine and Dentistry will have higher salaries, but are hard work and require both Biology and Chemistry at A-Level and will require you to take some form of entrance exam. Either the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) or BioMedical Admissions Test BMAT.

I hope this helped, and good luck, I hope you find what you are looking for!

Depends on course and university. Imperial Compsci grads can expect a median £45k start. Oxon maths grads £35K, compsci grads £40k.

You can make close to that very quickly after graduating.

Seriously though, there are many tools online that give an idea of median start salary.

And many are incorrect, as people that actually work in those fields will tell you.
