    Ok so I'm 19 and turning 20 in April. I've been in between jobs since leaving school and wouldn't say I have that much work experience. I now know tho that I really want to go uni to do accounting or law. I have gcse in maths and also maths statistics but English I have none.

    Can anyone just give me some advice on what I should do? How I can give myself the best possible chance to get accepted next year? And if it's even worth applying? Will I have to do a access course as I haven't applied straight from school?

    If anyone could private message me it would be much appreciated

    lol you do know theres no cut off age for uni, right?

    there are people in their 30s, 40s and even 50s who go to uni

    An access course is an intense but quicker method to access uni.

    I'm 22 just started a foundation degree. Foundation degrees have an extra year attached so they are 4 year courses a d mean that in the extra year you will learn all the skills needed in your first year. Try look for one of these.
