Do not bother with a degree unless you get at least aaa at a level.

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I say this because it is unlikely that you will benefit from, any better job with a degree or without it.
    You will be several 10s of thousands out of pocket and you will NOT get a reasonable job.

    Forget it, the government want the UK to look as though their people are better educated, but it is not the case.
    Face it, there are some people suited to academic lives and some people are not.

    It suits the government, it will not suit you.

    There are still extremely bright people who will get the jobs - and they will be the people who get the top class university degrees from the top class universities - the rest of you will not get a good job and will be left with a massive debt.

    Just remember, the rest of you will just be left with a big debt.

    Just wanted to say thanks for joining The Student Room: welcome on board!

    How's it going so far? Found what you need? Below I've listed a few things you might fancy trying on TSR. If you've got any questions, add them to the TSR news, help and feedback forum.

    Put your work head on:
    No matter what level or subject you're studying, you'll find someone on TSR who can help. Find your subject in the Study Help forum and ask a question or visit our brilliant revision section for help and advice. And if you're planning on going to university, you have to visit our uni applications forum. It's full of people who can help you through the whole process.

    Take it easy:
    You know there's more to TSR than studying, right? In Hobbies and Interests you'll find people talking about everything from the latest football scores through to what mobile phone to buy next. Or how about the Debate and Current Affairs forum? Latest news, politics, education...it's all fair game in here.

    That's just a taster, of course. To find even more conversation, head to the Forums page and find a place to start up your own discussion.

    Enjoy the site!

    I guess my BBC at A-Level was too bad to get a First at uni and a graduate job at Sky :erm:
