Did you really just graduate university OP? You sound very naive and immature.
1.7 % off a 2:1...stops me from the zillions oof opportunities in this world.
Also....surely a high 2:2 from Queen Mary is ten times better than a 2:1 from Middlesex/Westminst/Hertfordshire/Brunel or any of the lower tier polytechnic uni's....if not the same?
Surely employer's wouldn't just dispose my application against candidates from the uni's mentioned above?
I honestly don't mean that in a rude way...but the competition at Qm is of a much higher standard than say Westminister? I know Students at Westminster who have 3 E's or D's at A-level.
Basically 2:1's from university's across the country aren't the same???
I read an article on Times Online saying that employers are increasingly accepting graduates with 2:2 degrees, being more concerned about other skills and experience than getting a 2:1. Unfortunately I can't find that article now. >_>
no. I read a article in a paper [ can't remember ] but it stated that 2:2 is the new 2:1 to widen the labour market. Experience would be great as well as get a masters.
One of my uncles got a 2:2 from Queen Mary, cant remember the subject, something like business/finance. He is now training to be an accountant, so it is not the end of the world. If you can present urslef well in a job interview then you will be fine.
