    Hello everyone, I've been lurking around these forums for the past few days now and I have to say, you guys seem great. Alot of very helpful replies and general support for each other.

    Some info about me: I'm 17, taking 3 AS-levels at college and decided not so long ago that I wanted to go down the IT career route.

    What i've decided to do is self study the compTIA A+ this year and next year while im taking my A-levels self study net+

    Then after that i'm not quite sure what to do. I could go to uni while getting part-time work experience or go straight into full time work if i can find a job and study for the microsoft or cisco certs.

    What do you guys think about this? I'd love to hear your opinions. :biggrin

    Hi Vince and welcome.

    There is a third option you haven't mentioned - take some time off before you fall into the daily drudgery of having to go to work for the rest of your natural life.:D

    Failing that, what degree would you be looking at? Also, what A/AS Levels are you doing?

    Hi Baba

    The AS levels i'm taking are graphics, ICT and English language. I wish i had chosen computing too but oh well.

    For my uni degree i'm not sure, something related to which route i decide to take i suppose..security/networking
