    Hi All,

    I am currently studying for my MSc in Bulilding Surveying at Nottingham Trent University. My first degree was Psychology, so quite a change of pace for me.

    I recently got a second piece of coursework back for a module and I made a mistake that cost me a decent mark. But I managed to pass it and combined with the first piece of work for the module, I think I have just come through with a low commendation for the module as a whole. I know this isn't to bad, but I cant help but kick my self for the mistake I made.

    However this has got me thinking about the overall importance of the grade I will get for the degree. Obviously I want to get the best mark possible, but exams are my week point and I was relying on that course work being really good.

    What emphasis do people think employers place on the grade? Of course there is some emphasis - but there are other factors like work experience and who you know that have an influence.

    I worry that as I proceed, I might do as well as I hope.
