Hey guys, hope you all are doing. I want to discuss about my situation regarding my studies. I'll try my best to discuss this as short as possible.

So I was graduated from Pakistani high school in the year 2016 by studying Computer Science as a subject in the final year and my grades were low . After that I had a gap of almost three years because of such educational agents who misguided me, while applying in Australian Universities. None of them told me to re-take the exam so that my admission process could go easier.

Because of having low grades in the final year of high school and having year gaps, I have decided to take some steps which I believe could take me to the genuine path in the future.

1. Register in OTHM Level 4 Diploma in Information Technology
which is equal to the 1st year of 3 years Bachelor degree in the UK and
keep doing this continuously till its Level 6.

OR

2. Start doing IT certification course like CompTIA A+, ORACLE, etc.

Your guidance will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

No idea but you need to decide what it is you are trying to achieve?
Given the choice I would look at the jobs market see what certification was in demand and do professional/ industry certification.
I assume this is nothing to do with the UK or its education system?

You also need to be confident you can cope.

Had to look it up, but it is just equivalent to a HNC in IT, which equals first year in uni. It is ok, but I would take the professional qualifications if you want employability. I see there is a top up option after level 5 by Uni of Plymouth, but that isnt a great uni by itself.

Uni of London were offering an online CS degree, which is a new thing.
