    due to some personal circumstances my likely degree class will be a 2.2. I am thinking about applying to london met for MSc in Investment and commodities or there is the option of work. I have been looking around and a lot of the grad schemes ask for a 2.1 so my question is whether it is possible to go into a company directly from uni not in a grad scheme with a 2.2 and also what sort of companies do that.

    Any information would be great

    I am not sure because I know many grad schemes ask for 2.1 and not with a masters. but some don't mind if you have a masters and some also ask for 2.2 and above so it is really hard to say maybe you should look/ask companies ?

    Accountancy yes, investment no - London Met wouldn't get you out of that hole. Have you tried applying to accountany firms? you might not need the MSc if you get lucky.

    Thank you for the replies. i do not want to just do a masters to cover up for my 2.2 although it would look that way i am really intrested in finance and i found this course now in university of birbeck Finance / Finance and Commodities (MSc) which seems interesting. And also another reason for leaving it another year is that i can apply to more firms because most firms now have closed positions meaning i would not be able to apply anyways. I have had one paid work experince with an accountancy firm and also i have had unpaid 2 weeks work experience in the hospital accounts department i dont know if that would increase my chances.
