    Okay, so I was just checking certain universities requirements for accounting & finance degree
    Then I came across a foundation year for A&F at warwick.. On the entry requirements I think it said something like 3 A-Levels
    So lets say someone got like an ABB/AAB (minimum requirements for banks) which wasn't enough to get into warwick A&F couldn't they just do a foundation year and still be at a target, with minimum grades. So could they just go up the same pipeline of work experience (but a year later as it's 4 years) or like would they be less competitive? You do get the same degree in the end but do you have to declare that it was with foundation year?

    Makes 0 difference, same protocol like any other four year course.

    Na I am still aiming high, I didn't actively search for a backup plan just coincidentally came across it
    but I guess its always good to have a backup plan if worse comes to worst.
