    My position at the moment is that I can either choose to graduate now with an ordinary degree in biochemistry or I can resit two exams next summer to attain a third class degree with honours from the university of Leeds

    My question is for anyone with more knowledge, is it really worth it? I know both degrees are considerably undesirable on a CV but obviously through my own idiocy I've arrived at this point. I just want to know if people think it would be better to just accept the ordinary degree now and continue on or if I should try and attain the third class degree.
