How relevant is your degree once you've become chartered?

    I have never been one who 'exams well' and went to uni knowing this regardless. The result of this is that I am more than likely going to graduate with a 2:2 this year in A&F.
    I'll have all my exemptions & have been offered a role at a top 5 firm in my field regardless of my final grade. My question to you guys is, will the degree hinder me in future roles once I'm part qualified & does it even remotely matter once I am chartered?

    Your degree result is unlikely to hinder you as long as you stay within the field of accountancy, as your experience will be more important. But be prepared, the accountancy exams are much harder than uni, you will have to work hard to pass those.
