    How do you even get a third? Like seriously, I've never gotten below a high 2:2, on essays I've done, including reading, at about 5 hours before deadline, and exams where I've done barely any studying..
    Not everyone in the world is a clone of you. Some universities/subjects it's easier to get a good mark despite what anyone else says.

    Yeah, because a film productions course is bound to be way more difficult than a Politics degree.

    Well, erm no, because I joined this forum during my A levels.
    And, well again no, because I'm pretty average on here compared to most users.

    So, well, wrong overall. Congrats.

    A 3rd is pretty easy to get. So its says I suck at the degree I did pretty much.
    errmmmm you haven't done a degree yet, right?

    You'll get messed over at uni if you take that attitude.

    Get some work experience, and do some projects of your own (to build up a portfolio). Then kiss alot of ass. Start on a really crap job, and work your way up.

    This.

    Hows your portfolio looking? sort it out and you'll be on the way.

    I'd go for an ordinary degree over a 3rd class honours...
    So getting 35-40% is better than 40-50%?

    I think id rather not have a degree than a third. I would seriously consider repeating the year.
    I'm guessing you've never been to uni either? Its not A levels, you can't do that.

    I've heard you can basically do nothing and get a third.

    Your allowed to repeat years that aren't the final year, you just graduate.

    Well obviously not, but in my uni (I assume the whole of Scotland) you don't have to do an honours year, you can leave after 3rd year with an Ordinary degree.

    Sounds better to say "I have an ordinary degree from the university of..." than "I wasted a year of my life and achieved nothing at the end of it". You're better off admitting defeat and kidding on it was the ordinary you were aiming for. I think anyway.

    Right, but most students on here don't have that option...

    And I don't think South of the boarder it would sound better, since few peope are aware of that (or is it just me?)

    I've done a degree and I agree with the person who said a 3rd is easy to get. Of course it is! You'd have to try to fail, really...

    a 2:2 is not good enough, a 3rd is a 20k piece of toilet paper.

    The people who got thirds on the degree I did (which is similar to the posters proposed course) really tried, they weren't all that good but they gave it their all.

    It seemed to be the ones with 2.2s and who dropped out/failed who didn't try.
