Got a third in mathematics due to some mitigating circumstances Watch

    So basically, I have ended up with a third in mathematics after three years at university. During the first term of my final year, I missed a lot of lectures due to suffering from chronic bronchitis(average attendance from sep-dec was 27%). I thought I might be able to cover everything up in my second term, but a lot of topics seemed alien to me. By the time the exams arrived I thought I was OK with most of the topics but the results showed otherwise(47%). Now this is a devastating blow for my career options.

    Now, is it worth doing a graduate diploma in mathematics? I'm hoping I can perform well enough and get admitted to an MSc program.

    A good graduate job is looking increasingly unlikely as there is so much competition already.

    Otherwise, I have looked at the chartered accountancy(ACCA) qualification. If I can pass the first few papers, it will greatly increase my chances in getting a articleship with an accountancy firm.

    Please advise if there is anything else I can do.
