It’s a nerve-wracking week for thousands of students up and down the country, with A Level results being issued on Thursday. While recent stats from UCAS suggest that as many as a quarter of students have received at least one unconditional offer, removing some of the stress from results day, for the majority it’s a stressful time as they wait to see if they got the grades they need to head off to the university of their choice. The good news is that even if you had a bit of a mare in your A-Levels and need to put off a trip to University - or ditch those plans entirely - you don’t actually need a degree in order to land a top-paying job.

It can be really frustrating sitting at home, knowing that you can work, but just not having the right opportunity to fit around the times of day you’re free (mostly afternoon nap time and after 7 p.m. in my case).
