    Hey guys I really want to go to university but don't have the entry requirements.
    I left school with a C in English, C in r.e and d IN MATHS. I've done a apprenticeship in facilities management for a year and complete my NVQ LEVEL 2 in faculties service and my functional skills level 1 maths. I want to go to university but do not want to do a-levels, that's out of the question. What do you think the quickest route to university would be ? I was thinking of doing a level 3 apprenticeship as I know some university's accept NVQ level 3 qualifications or maybe an access course ? please give me any useful/insightful advice because this is doing my head in. Thank you

    I think more universities accept the access course than nvqs so could the better option

    Agree Access course. Try and do it either at the unii you are applying to or a decent uni that gives you a qualification acceptable at other institutions.

    The advanatge of the Access course is that it will give you an advantage at getting onto the degree course at that uni.
