I'm 22 with ZERO qualifications. I know that I want to go into accounting and hopefully start off with one of the top 4, however, I have no A-levels or anything else for that matter - I am only now starting to retake my GCSEs this year. I have been reading a lot on the internet on whether I should just start off with ICAEW's CFAB or ACCA's Foundation level, or go to a university first? There are a lot of people saying that you can only go so far without a degree and others saying it doesn't matter. So I thought I would actually ask people who know what they are talking about. Should I go to University if I'm aiming to apply to the big 4, or do CFAB or the Foundation level and hope that I get an internship with one of the big 4, any advice is apprenticed!
