    Hi Folks.
    I am seeking abit of advise. Im starting my education out again (age 19) I had some personal issues at school but over the last 2 years have been focused and determined to get back into education. I would like to go to Anglia Ruskin University and study a BSC Hons in computer science. I have worked in the Industry for 5 years hands on experience in consultancy, and have taken various certifications that Unfortunately in terms of education don't stand for much, the first is CompTIA A+ 801/802 , I also took a IGCSE in ICT, both of which went well, I need to take at least 3 more GCSE's and maybe 2 / 3 A level Cambridge Regional college recommended i take the 2 year extended diploma, I am not keen to spend 2 years at college but will If i have to, I was thinking about other options maybe doing the 1 year fast track diploma (equivalent to 1 A level) and maybe taking external candidate A levels. I am happy to study every living moment and put every bit of effort it, what would the recommended route be? Ruskin is a popular university so i want to make my application as strong as possible.

    Thanks

    you are 19 but you've had 5 years working in the industry?

    have you emailed the course tutor to ask their opinion?

    Hey. Duly noted thank you

    I left school early and began an apprenticeship , so did things in a rather different ration.

    I have contacted various course tutors, but they don't really have much suggestion.

    Thanks
