I just wanted to ask about the minimum requirements for the big 4, specifically the GCSE requirements. First of all i dont want you to think i want sympathy i just want some answers.
I messed up on my GCSE English language exam and got a C in it. As 3/4 of the big 4 want a A/B in eng lang i was wondering what my options are for them, whether i could use the excuse that i had a really rubbish teacher who didnt teach us at all and the head of department had to intervene, or will that just fall on deaf ears plus I’m not sure if the school will back me on this so im not counting on it.
I did however get a B in English literature but as they seem to want language im doubtful for that as well.
I also would like to know what other companies policy are on GCSE grades especially the smaller firms like Baker Tilly and the like, if they dont say on their website about GCSE requirements does that mean they will consider my application.
And last of all what is their policy on retakes, i know some only accept the grades that you got on your first go.
So any help will be much appreciated.
