MSc Distinction and a Year of work experience but terrible A-levels and Undergrad Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Ok. I am the first to admit that I was lazy at school and during my undergraduate degree and had no real direction in life. I scraped by with a 2.2. I then worked for a year and realised I wanted so much more. At 25 I am now studying International Management at Strathclyde, working my ass off and attaining a distinction. I have taken a real interest in consultancy this year. My A-levels and undergraduate degree are obviously huge stumbling blocks for me. My excellent masters does not disguise the fact that I messed about until I was 22. Does anybody have any advice as to how I could slowly work my way up the ladder and become a strategy consultant?

    I'm in a similar situation as well :/
If you won £30,000, which of these would you spend it on?
