    so i'm looking forward to applying for 2020 training contracts, a lot of firms ask for AAB at least apparently. but the problem is I've never taken A-levels before.
    I am currently studying the GDL, with a 2:1 BSc, I was an international student, I didn't take any public examination in my country neither. I gained entry to my Bachelor through a foundation degree.
    Is anyone familiar with my situation?
    What do you think about my chances with TCs without A levels?

    This is not uncommon.

    Did you get an Access to HE diploma via your Foundation year? If so, there is an equivalent UCAS points criteria which you could apply to show whether you have the equivalent of AAB.

    If not, then you just need to explain there was no entry exams in your home country and that you did the foundation degree. I'd be proactive in calling firms before submitting your application to check whether they will consider you (they should) and also how best to go about making your applications isn't incorrectly screened out.
