Degrees and exams matter very little in practice in my experience.

Some of the best programmers I have meet were self taught, some of them were former physicists, some of them had a candidacies.

Some companies use it as a filter for job applications tho.

So I guess the answer is, it depends, sector, company values, geography, etc. all matter.

So, a question to ask first might be, where do you wanna work?

Education does increase your chances.

But, to get a job in a big company or small company NOTHING can compete with what we call "connections" (aka: I know this guy and I trust him).
