    hi!

    My friend and I have a bit of an issue. She was doing a four- year economics degree and was getting 2.2 averages for the first and second years. She found last year really hard and failed her summer exams and then resits, so was withdrawn from the course.

    When applying for jobs, do you guys suppose she has any kind of edge over people with no university study at all? She has a diploma of higher education from the 2 years she did do, but often application forms with drop down boxes only give the option of your highest qualification being either a levels or a degree.. surely she's learnt most of the skills anyone looking for a degree of 2.2 or below would want?

    It depends on an employer, some prefer candidates with experience over degree ones. Cannot she write in the notes about her diploma? Or there are no notes section?
