I'm looking to go into finance, working for one of the Big Four. What are their typical a level requirements? Does it really matter, does the degree matter more? Is A*A*B fine or does that B put me at a disadvantage? The annoying thing is I was two marks off an A

For Pwc and EY the alevels dont matter

Degree as long as you have an upper second then the requirement is fine.


In securing a place it's a more about how you can demonstrate you're a good fit for them

Should I do a fourth a level in hopes of getting an A in my gap year to compensate for that B? Does a levels even matter that much? Are they really strict with a levels, do they want all a levels to be examined in the same series/year (not spread across 2 years)/no resits? Should I just leave it if I've met the uni entry requirements? I can retake the B subject in the autumn, but I haven't studied it in ages, dunno if I'm gonna get an A. Just concerned with employers using a levels as a filter
