Hi,

I'm 23 y.o. and I'm graduating from university in one of the EU countries this year - BA in humanities, I will probably obtain the 1st.

In spite of three years of being committed, dean's scholarship for best students, etc., I'm completely disappointed with the subject itself and I can't see any relevant career path in my country.

RN I am thinking about continuing my education in the UK (postgrad. in England/Scotland or undergrad. in Scotland, because of fees).

Ethical hacking and programming have been my hobby for quite a while now. For this reason, I'm considering pursuing a degree in Computing or Cyber Security.

I do not have any relevant background in Maths (nothing like Higher Maths in high school, only humanities, art and languages), which is usually required. But I liked Maths back at school and I'm more than willing to learn.
The truth is, I simply wanted to do something completely different when I was 17.

I really need your advice!

My options are:
1) Gap year/Trying my luck with Clearing -->
Computing/Ethical Hacking BSc without Maths (for instance, Abertay)

2) Gap year:
Re-taking my high school exams after 4 years (lol) = achieving an equivalent of Advanced Higher Maths -->
BSc.

3) Conversion Masters (for instance, in Glasgow)
- I'm officially receiving my BA diploma in September - in this case, a gap year is more than probable.

4) Stick to my subject, stay in Academia, stop panicking...

If gap year: Any suggestions on spending it productively?

* Sorry for language mistakes!
