    What makes you think you'd get rejected by places like Cass and LBS? They look for a 2:1 and your academic record isn't at all bad (it's quite similar to mine). Cass has a good record of getting students into IB and LBS MiM has probably the best employment report I've ever seen. Have you done a GMAT?

    If not, I suspect you might be better off applying for easier courses at the target places. Management is the one that springs to mind.

    No because they want a GMAT and I can't afford to study one..at least not at the moment. Thanks for your answer

    Alexiel, there are courses at Cass that dont require you to take GMAT. I began to study GMAT 1 month ago and I am quite confident now to have 600 (even though I am non UK student, verbal section is very difficult for me). You should take the mock exam first, then practice a bit if you think you can have high score; or you can apply to courses like Banking and International Finance, Investment Management. I have offer from Cass within 1 month, and you dont have to pay admission fee Worth a try!
