    Hi all!

    I am in a bit of a dilemma and I was wondering if someone out there could help me out if they have any knowledge to share on my situation,

    Basically, I am a psychology student about to commence my final year. I have achieved As and Bs, but the majority of my grades have been Cs and Ds. And I have multiple repeats, some even 4 times. However, I have spoken to my tutor and he has advised me that looking at my current situation, a 2:1 or First is still achievable if I was to average 70-80 % in the coming year.

    I have been eyeing some financial institutions for graduate schemes, in finance and accounting roles. Some of these companies ask for 2:2s. What I am worried about is if I manage to secure a 2:1 or First, will my transcript affect whether I am taken seriously as a candidate or not?

    Your transcript as in your breakdown of modules? Unless you studied an accountancy/finance related degree which gives you exemptions from professional exams, your transcript won't make any difference.

    Just focus on getting a 2.1 or first so you have good options. A 2.2 is pretty limiting.
