I really need some advice and cheering up .
I'm doing a BSc Mathematics degree and in my final year aiming for a first but sure i could get the 2:1
I want to go into chartered accountancy.
I have tried to go onliny and start applying untill i saw the entry requirments were
280 ucas points, and a 2:1
I have 260 ucas points .
My lecturers at uni were saying a 1st in a mathematics degree would over ride my ucas points. I had planned to re-sit my a-levels but my lectuer at uni said dont bother they dont matter after your degree.
And now they do. So im really upset and worried.
A family friend of mine achieved a 2:2 in her degree and got onto chartered accountancy graduate scheme.
I'm getting worried and upset.
Someone suggested earning the extra ucas points. I have no clue.
Can someone help me and guide me to what to do please!

Just apply anyway. You might get rejected, you might not. No risk no reward.
I really would advise you to lose this attitude, as harsh as it sounds. If you're not open south England then you're severely limiting your options and with the graduate market the way it is no one is really in a position to dictate terms.
