    I finished my biomedical degree with a really low 2:2 and managed to get onto a master’s course with a merit, but have struggled for years beforehand in terms of employment. I am finally starting to realise that I am naturally not bright. My GCSE grades are poor, my a-level grades are average, my undergraduate degree is awful, and I don’t know my master’s marks yet. I have failed at every interview with over 50 interview rejections.. What should I do?

    Like someone said on here, they said I should apply for a cleaner job

    Try retail, pretty standard career for those that went to college or uni and didn't do too good. Don't get down about it, it might only just be temporary, I know plenty of absolute thicko's who make very decent money and judging by where you're at so far, you're more intelligent than them

    Chances are if you managed to do that stuff you are not that stupid, just not cut out for academia/white collar work you're not interested in. I was in the same situation and ended up welding, haven't looked back. Try and find a hobby that can also potentially be a job, and make it your job. That's my advice.
