    Hello,

    As far as I know, I obtained 7 distinctions and a pass for my HND (please don't ask, I don't know how this happened either). Anyway, what can I do with these qualifications since I do not have GCSE's (bad childhood and diagnosed aspergers syndrome)?

    I would like to go to University but I would rather go to a University that will have me based on my abilities (by taking my GCSE's). I don't really want to go to a University that will have me based on sympathetic means, but rather I'd prefer to go to the best University that I can.

    Does anybody have any suggestions?

    The best thing is to apply and put yourself out there, they might let you in based on your HND and previous educational experience.

    I have had 5 offers for top tier universities in the UK without a single GCSE.
