I am slightly underqualified as I only have matric and therefore will not apply for this position. I wish you the best of luck.

You have previously mentioned on MYBB that you are in desktop support, playing with front end development this would be more the reason why you don't qualify than the degree. Thanks for the response though, the trolling helps keep my job posts in the daily mix ;)
