Are A-Levels really the only boarding pass to success?


Thursday 18th August 2016, a normal day for some, but for second year college students, today is make-or-break day. For many, A-Levels are the first class ticket to university.

On the other hand, some students have sat their exams with no idea what they want to ‘be when they grow up’, therefore there’s no direction for them post-college.

Of course, not every student will walk away thrilled, some people don’t pass. Because of this, students are rejected from their chosen uni placement and think; “This is it.”

But is it? The majority of our Juice Academy social media apprentices have completed A-Levels with no desire to go to uni, hence their choice to become an apprentice.

Take a look at three of our current Juice Academy girl’s A-Level stories:

“Since starting sixth form and being introduced to UCAS and university courses, everyone wanted to go and I decided to jump onto the ‘bandwagon’. Exams passed and the closer it got to results day, the more I realised I really didn’t want to go university. Instead, I started looking for apprenticeships which is when I found The Juice Academy. I now work full-time in something I’m passionate about.”
