    ! Sick that I spent years I have fallen over this site after typically typing in third class honours degree into..Ok, so 45 years of age, having graduated 2 years ago with the Open University with a BA Honours in English Language and Literature (Third Class) feel quite sick that I spent 6 years to complete a degree where not only do people on this website deem as useless, but ridicule certain universities.

    What I would like to point out is that most people whome explore university study, whilst bringing up families, paying a mortgage and working full-time, without student loans and the support of parents, actually may have somewhat more to offer!

    I am bumping this thread up after 4 months of inactivity - so sue me!

    A lot of 'da kidz' on here haven't got a clue about the real world I am afraid. To a lot of them a third is a disaster because a lot of them know little else.

    If a student wants to go onto postgraduate study straight after their studies, then getting a third is a bit of a disaster.

    But if they go and get themselves experience and learn some skills then a few years of that will get them onto any decent masters course. Thankfully, in this country, universities really value life/work experience after graduation.

    And just in case you all think I am talking out of my backside. I am earning 100000 dollars a year tax free after funding my MA. So, a third is not the end of the world, it might involve a 'scenic route' to getting to where you want to go but don't give up.

    I am doing better financially than all my pals who gained firsts and 2.1's (Top banana's that they were).
