    Find work experience.. cold-calling is your best bet, thosegrades won't get you passed the initial filters for most of formal programmes, unfortunaetely, networking would be the way to go, and even then.. that's a bit edgy. You might be forced to do a masters at a more reputed university.

    Don't you need ABB to get past the filters anyhow?
