I was wondering if you could help me with my situation.
I went to University in 2011 studying an Accounting with Economics degree. Unfortunately due to my own failings and external factors (relating to my mental health) I repeated my second year two times and only came out with a 2.2.
After I graduated in 2016 I signed up for the ACCA, but passed my first exam in December 2018 (F9 Financial Management) on my fourth attempt. Since graduating from my degree in 2016 I worked as a picker/packer in a factory on and off (at one stage last year I was seven months unemployed).
Anyway, early next month I will begin working at an accounting firm in London for experience (at least five to six months). I intend on sitting 4/5 exams and then apply for a full time job (if I passed five I should have one professional paper left for the December session). I would like to know what my chances are (of gaining a full time position) and if there are any tips you could give me to increase my chances.
I would also like to add that despite my poor record on my degree and the ACCA I am very confident I can pass these papers with good marks (I never put in the required effort), but there are obviously quite a lot of red flags on my CV which concern me. I am also 26.
