    thanks man!

    bloody £40 for gown hire for the ceremony
    Ours was 72 quid for gown and photo. Daylight ****ing robbery. At least my parents reimbursed me on the day! Graduation is a great day, I'm looking forward to attending my friends one in a couple of weeks

    Well done on your results

    Somebody I know put it in perspective - I've paid them £27,000 so far in tuition fees and they're still trying to leech that extra little bit

    They mentioned there's a photo and ceremony but they didn't say if we had to pay for anything else.

    We do have to pay for our graduation certificate thing though; that wasn't cheap either!!

    Thanks man, I know I probably could've worked harder over the 3 years and gotten a first, but a 2.1 is all I need for my masters course so I'm not too worried about it

    I think guys look much better with a bit of stubble, but not a full on beard though.

    thank you!!!
    i'm just glad it's all over

    also, some guys can pull off a beard although i would say stubble is probably the best way to go

    I would like to request a CT football club roll call.

    Also, I think there's 2 other CT but I can't remember them now, so someone tag those in. Oh, and Mad Vlad too.

    You don't need a first unless you want to go into academia. I know that if I put the effort in i'd have got a first with ease, but at the end of the day who cares? Once you get your first 'proper' job your degree is largely irrelevant anyway unless you've studied something like Maths or Dentistry.

    are you serious?
    £100 just to rent a gown for a day??!
    i'm not sure if it's the same anywhere but at mine you MUST wear a gown - they'll even help you out financially if you can't afford it.
    maybe supplies just go crazy with prices since everybody needs to get one?

    thanks man, can't say i worked massively hard, but it's over and i'm very relieved

    exactly - i'm only wanting to do a 1 year masters at Leeds and then go straight in to work; they only want a 2.1 in psychology or a related subject so that's all i need

    precisely, once you reach the next level, your past doesn't matter all too much.
    real life working experience beats a fancy degree any day.
    the only reason i'm doing the masters is so that i have specialist knowledge that will help me hold down a job when i do get one.

    that being said, degrees at Newcastle and Leeds wouldn't be too shabby either

    Scraping a 2.1 despite doing **** all for 90% of the course was a pretty good feeling I must admit.

    I can very much relate to this.

    Me and my mate went for a drink today; both in apparent disbelief that we got 2.1s, considering we both know how little work we put in

    Although for anybody who hasn't finished their degree yet, don't do what I did - it's definitely worth putting in that extra bit of effort for a few years and getting a better grade

    A 2.1 is all you really need, but a first will always trump that (unless you're up against somebody with experience); night as well try as hard as you can considering how much money it's costing

    swirls pls
    that's why i said don't do what i did
    real life experience will always be better than any kind of academic qualification (excluding specific subjects), but a first will also always be better than a 2.1 (obviously).

    my problem was that i didn't really get in to the uni lifestyle until second year when i moved in with friends.
    so i did things the wrong way round - instead of having fun in y1 and working in y2, i did the opposite.
    my grade in y2 was therefore pretty poor so i was playing catch-up for the entirety of my final year.

    don't underestimate how important year 2 can be; even if it's only 1/3 of your degree, that's still a big chunk and it can really give you a mental boost going in to your final year
