    • Hello,
      I currently have the following qualifications, I don't know how useful they are. I was wondering what I can do with them and what they mean. I have just been going from one thing to the next without really knowing what I'm doing it for. I don't have GCSE's but I would like to go to university. I do have plenty of experience with web development, over 130 tasks completed on websites. My grades are appropriate I believe. Any advice would be appreciated.

An HNC is equivalent to the first year of uni, and an HND is equivalent to the first two years of uni. So, you could do a top up year in computing or a closely related subject. It would be a one year (ish) course, and you'd leave with a degree.
