    Do I stand a chance at ever getting into an IT course, and if so, what do I have to do to get there?

    **My qualifications**

    Animal Care BTEC Level 2 Diploma | 2013 – 2014
    I was awarded a Distinction* from college in 2014, I also gained multiple functional skills (not exactly sure which ones).

    GCSE | 2011 – 2013
    I was awarded with 3 (D)’s in Maths, English and Science.

    **What I'd like to study and why**

    I would like to study IT, which I know is a far cry from any of my current formal qualifications however, I have always been very good at IT in high school and I believe I have a natural ability to learn quickly in this subject compared to anything else I have ever studied.

    Ask away, if you have any questions or even better, answers

    I assume this is for University correct?

    You could probably get on a foundation degree/year which are usually aimed at slightly older adults and people with fewer qualifications. Definitely not straight onto a BSc though. (Unless the University only cares about your money)
