Essentially ive applied to at the moment 3 accountancy apprenticeships in audit and assurance where essentially you skip a degree and become a chartered accountant after 4 years(ACA). Im currently at the 4th/5th stage(assessment days/final interview) of these applications so although its very early days im trying to figure out if i should take the opportunity and skip a Bcs if i ended up getting it.(applied to cambridge kings bristol warwick and leeds)(predicted 3A* so you can gain a sense of my uni prospects). Ive done **** tons of research but its like so confusing i really have no idea so any help would be great thx

Sounds like you might be in a great position with lots of options!

Just to confirm - are the 3 firms you have applied to all offering the 4 year route (not 4.5 or 5 years)?
- would paying for living costs at university be a problem for your family, or do you get a large student loan allowance?
- do you want to go to university?

Will do - there are a number of people on this site who have considered what you are considering and could provide their experiences. Well worth reading their experiences (check the accounting forum as well as the apprenticeships ones). One guy also does you tube videos which I think are very informative. I'll need to think about it and give some notes.

Of interest - which offices are you applying for apprenticeships in? Cardiff? Would you/ could you live at home while doing the training?
