I am graduating this year from the University of Leeds with a BA in Economics and Politics. Very likely a 2:1 (63% or so if that matters).
I am not from the UK and I did an international foundation year in order to be accepted since my high school qualifications count as GCSEs not A-Levels. I got AAA in the foundation modules (Economics, Maths, and Politics) so I got accepted.Those are my academic qualifications (I speak 2 languages if that matters).
I have no real work experience and I'm already 26. I worked for my father's business (a restaurant) back home after I graduated from h. school for around 3 years (saved money) and then came to the UK and I have been here ever since (I don't intend to return back).
Am I completely unemployable? as far as I can see, most graduate jobs require A-levels which I do not have (I don't think foundation years matter to anyone).
Prospects - am I doomed? watch

Tis a bit of a tricky area - I know Access students have similar problems.I know theres been threads on this in the past.

Which country are you from originally? Can you not build up your work experience there first with a view to coming back when you have a few years under your belt?
Getting a first job is a problem for many graduates irrespective of A Levels or not.
