In this modern world do you really need A-Levels still? There is no end to famous celebrities tweeting and bragging about how they are millionaires even though they failed their GCSEs or A-Levels back at school, but does that mean that the qualifications are null and void and of no use? The simple answer is no. A-Levels are more vital than ever for students and still hold a key role in education progression.
Students often fall into the trap of thinking A-Levels are only needed if you are looking to go on to university to study a Degree, but actually, many professions that don’t require a Degree do require students to hold at least one A-Level or Level 3 qualification. For example, if you wanted to join the Police or the Army Officer Training, you would need A-Levels or Level 3 Diplomas.
The great thing about A-Levels is they show you have reached a certain benchmark in your education and that you have a solid foundation understanding in the topics you have grades in. This means that either employers or universities can tell at a glance your academic ability and even years after you have completed the qualifications, you can use your grades to open doors into new jobs or even to help you with finally going to University.
