A 2:1 is a very good grade. A lot of clever people achieve 2:1s. Nothing to be ashamed of.
At my university, and in many universities, only ~10% of people manage to achieve a 1st. And getting a 2:1 still takes a lot of dedication and work.

A first is reserved for the smartest of people on your course, maybe like 5-15% of people? depends on uni and course obviously.
A 2:1 is a very good grade .
The trouble is, a 2:1 is deemed pretty good, but a 2:2 is deemed essentially worthless most of the time, the steps down are big, just be glad you didn't get a 2:2 ;D
