    Hi everyone,

    This is my first time using this site, so anyway here I go...Basically, I went to university strait after school when I was 18 , I applied through clearing, I did not like the course that I had opted for so I dropped out. After working for the last year I decided to return and go back to university to do a course I enjoy (would highly recommend people who are choosing a course to do this!!) but I have a slight dilemma I only have 3 Scottish highers which is 180 UCAS points,which is the same as roughly 2 Alevals. ANYWAY sorry for babling on, anybody have any recommendations on what Uni's (if any) I should research into...Thanks for your time!

    I wouldn't normally recommend this, but considering how things are today, might be advisable to resit/do another A-level equivalent (or Scottish highers). It is advisable to have at least 280 UCAS points when you look for a graduate job (together with a 2.1). Unfortunately, this is for most graduate jobs.

    But you might be one of those people who shine outside the academia.

    Like the other people have said it will be better to do your a levels in a year or so apply for something better. It might take you time but it will be worth it in the long run.

    UWS will take any idiot off the street. Best finding a way to avoid that farce of a university though.

    Take a one year college course with a couple of highers bolted on to its programme. It's what I did and it worked fine. My grades aren't brilliant but they were just about enough to scrape in to Uni (ABBBB). This means abandoning UCAS for this year, and aiming for Summer 2014 intake.

    Well Solent do an HND and a foundation in business you may want to look there then after an HND you can top up on the 3rd year of a dedicated top up course of the BA and your marks wont carry over so you could just pass and then get a first in theory.
