A bit of background:
2nd year undergrad at a semi-target studying a Finance degree
Currently on year abroad in China
Learning Mandarin - intermediate level at the moment
260 UCAS points
Couldn't apply to spring weeks due to grades and doing a 4 year course
I want to go into M&A once I graduate, however the biggest problem is my UCAS points which is stopping me from applying as most want 300+. I'm learning financial modelling in my spare time and attending networking events.
What would be the best route if any into M&A for me?
Advice needed watch

Keep networking, official route in probably isn't going to work for you. You want to work out there in Asia or come back to the west?

I went into IB a couple of years ago having studied Economics & Chinese @ Nottingham Uni.
Are they really that caring about UCAS points? If it's just something on the website then ignore it and apply anyway. And don't worry about your university either, they take a real mix. Keep trying and sell your positives (Chinese is a real easy-to-sell competency)
