    Sometimes you need to start at the end. What do you want to do? What career do you want? If you're really not sure, what things do you enjoy?

    Generally, you need some kind of level 3 qualification. This might be A Levels, or an Access course, or a BTEC. You'll also need a level 2 qualification or GCSE in maths and English.

    Just apply, at the age of 24 y/o you probably don't even need Alevels. Have fun.

    C in Maths and English at GCSE level.
    Double A in IT.
    At College I did a Dida Course which I came out with A, A, B and a C.
    I have a few qualifications from other courses I did such as A BTEC in IT and certificates from
    A Btec Diploima in IT too.
    5 Years work experience in a heavily based customer service business, where the past year I have been a duty manager.

    I enjoy aspects such as Customer service, problem solving, Infomation technology, I prefer numbers over words.

    You probably won't need to take any more GCSEs as you have maths and English.

    If you want to study IT at uni, you may be able to be accepted based on your current BTEC, although it does depend on the exact title of the qualification.

    If you want any other degree, your best option may be an Access course, which is a one year course designed for uni entry. Alternatively, you could consider distance learning with The Open University.
