Thinking of applying

I'm looking for help from those of you who have taken the plunge.

I'm thinking of applying, but find the education bit confusing. I have Secondary and A Level qualification and would be trying to go as a Skilled Worker. Unfortunately I get the horrible feeling that A'Levels aren't going to help me make up my points.

Even if they do, am I likely to be successful as my job is an Admin one within Finance, with no qualifications such as Accountancy, etc.

Any idea?

Sorry if you already knew the link above! Also, don't worry about posting immigration type questions here. I'd only just realised there was an immigration question page so posted my stuff on here as well!! :)
