I’ve been reading a while, and have a general question regarding entry requirements for an IB.
I’ve been working part-time since I was 17 to fund my education, sometimes 20+ hours per week. This has always had a knock-on effect on my education. I’ve just graduated with a 2.1 degree in Computer Science from a good University, but my issue is that I only have 280 UCAS points (two C’s at A-level) although these were in technical subjects.
The only time I’ve not worked part-time was in the run up month to my finals - and this is reflected by the fact I averaged grades in the high 70%'s in those exams, and achieved a first overall in final year examinations.
I’ve got a strong record in interviews and assesment centres, having been successful for nearly every interview I’ve ever attended. My work experience is in a range of technical and customer service based jobs (i.e a Building Society’s loans department, a department store’s menswear department). I also have a good record of extra-curricular activities (Mainly Boxing & Football).
Will my overall achievement be enough to get me past the initial stages of the applications?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
