    Self taught A+ (got the text book, read it, took the exams), GCSE IT...which obviously counts for a lot . Been working as an IT Technician in a primary school since the end of November (although employed as a teaching assistant). Degree was in Biology.

    I have a B.S. in Information Systems. I receive the basics in most areas of IT, so that I can be prepared for any career I would I pursue in IT.

    I never thought I would go into help desk but here I am. It's funny how you can think, you might not be interested in field until you actually do it. I'm actually pretty interested in it right now.

    I've got an IT/Computer Related degree... I graduated 25 years ago and started on punch cards. The first (DOS) PCs came into Lancaster University in my final year; before that it was George 3, VAX and PDP/11.

    So my degree is almost entirely irrelevant now! In terms of the job I do now, I'm self-taught with the odd course thrown in
