I am currently 16 and have just finished my GCSE's. I plan to continue education and do maths, digital technology, and business studies A-Levels, starting in September (GCSE results permitting). From there, I had planned to apply for L3Harris Aviation Academy, or CAE Oxford through an airline cadetship.

The thing is, A-Levels are not required to apply through EasyJet, British Airways, or Ryanair, for example - and even for the Aer Lingus cadetship, which is fully funded, only 2 AS Levels are required. Would it be reasonable to apply for a cadetship on my 17th birthday (10th August)? And if I were to be accepted, should I not bother doing A-Levels?

I know the requirements for direct entry into L3 is only a high school level of education, but regarding getting placement after that, I'm not sure.

If I have my ATPL do previous qualifications get disregarded?

Also, in the event that I was not successful in my application, would that affect my chances of selection in the future?

Thanks,
Josh
