Believe it or not, it is not seen as positive socialism for them to think you got a 2:2 for say, just drinking/partying. Your sociability etc will be judged by your c.v., like what societies you joined, what extra curricular activities you did, any voluntary work, a job etc - and just how you are at the university. It is not judged on grade sorry. Someone could get a 3rd and be the most unsociable person, while someone with a 1st managed to juggle it all pretty darn well.
Exactly! A 1st may suggest geekiness but a 2.1 is acheivable with minimal but right amount of effort, i have friends who maybe attended a handful of lectures all yr and revised just during exam time and got 60+ and this is from a decent uni.

THIS.

If you want the big paying and high powered jobs, it is all about who you know and your network.

Do not despair OP! It most certainly is not the end of the world!
Thank you for the POSITIVISM!!!!
