No, at the moment I just want to pass everything. I only need a 2:2 to go into teaching but I would like a 2:1. I don't think I'm first material however.

Nahhh... Just get me a 2:1, a good time and a good job at the end of it and I'll be ecstatic. At the end of the day your degree classification doesn't matter as long as it gets you where you want to be - whether that's a first, a 2:1 or a 2:2. It's just a stepping stone.

I'd settle for a 2.1, a first would be nice though.

quite frankly, I'd be gutted if I didn't get a first.
I'm going to be gutted if I don't get a first just for first year. which is ridiculous, but, that's how it'll be.

On the balance of probabilities prepare for severe disappointment.

I would because I know I am capable of one... but it is not so much 'getting a first' that is important, it is knowing that I have achieved the best that I can.

I'd like to get a 1st, but won't be devastated if I don't. Will be quite happy with a 2.1.

Nope, I can't even get a first, even if I was offered a lump cash payment at this very moment. I seriously underestimated how difficult it is to gain a first, especially in the humanities.:sigh:

If I got a 2:2 though...... then yeah I failed myself.

yeah, I know. I mean, I've done all right in my assessed work so far but I don't expect a first or anything. still, gutted will I be.

I'd be slightly disheartened if I got below 67. I can't expect a first but I do put a lot of effort in so I hope I get back what I put in etc.

I always think that when people say this they're just trying to reassure themselves.

Yea, its going to cost a lot of money, so its important to aim for the best and get your moneys worth, however a 2:1 is cool but the best remains the best !
