UCAS points

 
#1 UCAS points

When applying for graduate entry into consulting (IT) I have noticed most organisations demand a certain number of UCAS points. I am now 23 and I will be 24 when I graduate. I am studying a business/IT degree and expect to get a 2:1, I have 2 year experience in IT departments, one year pre university and one year industrial placement in the IT department of one of the biggest brands in the world.

Unfortunately I only achieved three Cs at A level. That was 7 years ago and does not reflect the person I am now. Are there any alterative routes I can take to get into grad schemes? What companies will value my experience and degree more then my UCAS points? Would companies check if I “fabricated” my A level results?

Your best bet is to get onto a less-demanding non-consulting graduate scheme, prove yourself and work your way up then switch into consulting after an MBA when your school results won't matter as much.

All the big and medium sized firms, and the reputable boutiques do run background checks as standard procedure these days so it's not worth fabricating.
