    Hey guys

    Just wondering how important are grades in Msc. Are they as important as a 2.1 or above in Undergrad?

    I have just finished Msc Accounting and Finance at LSE and I missed out on a Merit by 4 marks in 1 module and I am extremely gutted. I can't make an appeal because the borderline for individual module is 3 marks so I guess I am stuck with a Pass grade.

    My background is a First Class in Economics and Finance from Keele.

    Will a pass hinder me from applying for top positions in Banking and Consultancy such as Wealth Management in Bulge Bracket banks?
