Hello I’m brand new to this site!

I finished my A-levels 4 years ago – my grades can be best-described as “below average”:

- D in AS Maths
- D in A2 Law
- Distinction Star in IT (OCR)

As you can tell, I barely tried at school hahaha (I was one of those “I’m only here because I have to be” students).

I’ve been working in a really good job as an Intelligence Consultant in Sydney for the past 4 years (without having attended University); however someday I’d like to work in the US, and I feel it would be an advantage if I could put a Degree to my name!

With my admittedly poor grades; what potential options do I have for securing a Degree?

FYI – I got 7 A*s and 3 As at GCSE.

Thank youuuuuu!

Damn! If you got such good GCSE grades, what happened at a level? Anywho, you can get a degree with the grades but that depends on the uni you’re willing to go to! Also, would you applying be for undergrad or masters?
