Not talking about TSR. I mean friends and ex school peers and even uni friends boasting about their 2:1s in some mickey mouse degree as though they have won a Nobel prize for some great discovery.
I graduate 2 years after most of my sixth form friends that'll be next year for me and I'm a little jealous that they will be starting their official adult life earlier than me. I know it'll be worth it in the end but honestly people need to realise that not everyone is graduating and maybe not everyone got the grades they wanted to achieve.
A 2:1 is not a great anything. Sorry but I will judge you if you rub it in my face.
Of course I had to be a sport and send congratulatory messages to friends etc but tbh I couldn't care less.
You just graduated? Keep it to yourself 'cause I don't care. Watch

Well universities don't just hand out first class degrees to anyone. Do you know how difficult it is to get a first class degree in a course like nursing or mathematics? Even for "mickey mouse" degrees, getting a first class degree is usually ridiculously difficult. So to get a 2:1 degree is pretty good since its only a level down from a first class degree...
Anyway most people with "mickey mouse" degrees usually struggle finding jobs because there is no demand for the career they are aspiring for and they end up being the type of graduates who feel they are too good to be employed in certain jobs, thus end up on the benefits scheme!
