I graduated in 2022 with a 2:1 in Biomedical sciences and have no desire to work in a related field.
I have 104 UCAS points (B in Biology, C in Maths, C in Chemistry), I want to become an accountant but most graduate schemes I have found ask for at least 112 or 120 UCAS points.
In GCSEs I have an A* in Maths, A in English Language, 3 more As, a B, 2 Cs and a D in Spanish.
I don't have any accountancy related work experience.
Is there any point in applying for these 112/120 schemes if I don't have the required UCAS points?
If I don't manage to get into a graduate scheme for 2024, is there any point in waiting until the next years graduate intake or should I look for accounting apprenticeships that put onto AAT instead of straight onto ACA/ACCA?
Or should I self study ACCA to become part qualified then try to get into an entry level accounts job and try to get the company to sponsor my training or simply put myself through the exams whilst getting the accounts experience?
