    I've been a bit frustrated recently as I was just rejected at the initial application stage by both Ernst and Young and KPMG for not having high enough "academic achievements"- the thing is, I easily meet both their degree requirements (predicted a 2.1) and school leaving ones (I did IB rather than A-levels, but got far more than 300 UCAS points)

    The thing is, because I went to school abroad, I never did GCSEs or any equivalent, am I'm worried that Im having that counted against me, which is really frustrating. I mean I could cope with the idea that Im not good enough, but I dont want to be getting rejected because of something that was never possible for me to do...

    Basically, am I possibly being rejected for acking GCSEs? and if so, is there anything I can do about this?

    cheers
