Is it worth me finishing my degree or...? watch

    • Thread Starter


    Im currently interning at a big professional services firm (Big 4) who offer school leavers, internships, grad programs, etc. and im really enjoying it and would like to work there after I graduate but the only problem is, im gonna really struggle to get a 2.1 and if they invite me back after my internship im gonna need one.
    I spoke to graduate recruitment and I would be able to apply for a school leavers program and hopefully skip out the application process because I already got onto the summer internship.
    The only problem is, I couldve done this 3 years ago instead of going to uni, it doesnt make a huge difference as such but I wont have a degree, just have the ACA providing I get that far. I dont enjoy my degree but I do only have a year left, providing I pass my 2nd year resits and then I still have to do really well in final year to get a 2.1, its very unlikely.
    As im working at the company now and my re-sits are days after I finish the internship, its quite unlikely I will pass them as all of my time is spent at work.

    What are peoples thoughts? Carry on and get a 2.2 (or even kicked out for failing my re-sits) or go down the school leaver program?

    The crucial bit in your post is 'I could apply' - this doesnt mean you will be offered a place.

    My advice would be to finish your degree. A half completed degree is absolutely no use to anyone - and dropping out will never look good on your CV. .
