It’s that one day of the year when celebrities tweet about how they are millionaires even though they failed their A-levels, but do you need the qualifications to secure your dream job?

For those who do well and get the grades they hoped for there is much to celebrate, as it unlocks the key to university and hopefully a career of their choice.

But university is just one of the many routes to employment, for example some school leavers may prefer to jump straight into work or look for an apprenticeship.

In fact, Indeed has rounded up 12 jobs that pay up to £72,000 without having a degree.

Many claim that work experience and life skills can be just as important as academic qualifications.

There is an impressive list of successful people who did poorly on their A-levels, such as newsreader John Snow who achieved an E, D and C.

Or Lorraine Candy, the ex-editor of Elle magazine, who dropped out of school at 16 to get a job at her local paper and begin her journalism career.

Have your say: Did your A levels get you your dream job?

However, others believe A-levels equip you with tools that will be essential to working life, such as analysing information and thinking critically.

This year’s results showed a slight drop in the number of those achieving the highest awards as exams returned for the first time since 2019.

As students across the UK receive their A-level results today, do you think the qualifications are needed to secure your dream job and did they help your career path? Let us know in the comments below.
