Jai, Try talking to a uni you're looking at's admissions department. As has been sugested, try asking about a foundation year, or asking if they'll take you with your BTEC.

Non-Graduate, Officially, Trainee Web Designer. Unofficially, trainee web developer, linux sysadmin, linux user support (1st line, ending soon, YAY!), windows (2k/xp) user support. Basic data-entry work (that which a .sh script won't help with). Basically, a trainee/grunt :)

I *love* my job. Really do... (I'm 20 atm)
