    I basically finished school with a GCSE in Art, D&T Woodwork and a GNVQ in ICT. Basically, the reason being I simply could not be bothered. My own fault, indeed but now my concentration capacity has significantly increased along with a willingness to learn.

    I currently do a degree, however it struck me the other week as my friends girl friend tried to belittle me. Ironic how I get 80%-90% on all modules when she barley passes.

    Do you think from an potential employers perspective that is does not look good that that I do not have GSCE Maths or English, bare in mind upon graduation I will be the age of 26.

    Maths and English might be worth getting your hands on as some jobs look for them as a prerequisite. Other than that though, since you'll have a degree, as long as you can get some decent experience I doubt any employers would be too concerned.

    GCSEs take no effort at all, if you can't even get a pass grade in English and Maths then that's pretty pathetic.
