Hi I'm going to uni but I'm not sure how my a-levels will effect me, my uni offer is well below my predictions because i applied for foundation year as i wanted to be extra safe because im worried we wont finish content in time so prepared to possibly low grades.
If you have a good degree level, how has your a-levels effected you getting a job?

Thank you

There are almost no careers where anyone cares what your A level grades were once you have a degree.

Subjects can be relevant - I got my first (computing) job over similarly qualified applicants because I had A level French and the small company in question had several French clients.

Once you have a degree, no one will care significantly about your A-Levels. I'd imagine the only time they might make a difference is in the sort of circumstance Skylark2 has said above.

A-Levels haven't impacted my career in the slightest. In fact, I don't think I've even spoken about or referenced my A-Levels since I was in my first year of uni.
