    I've received a 2:2 in LLB Law.
    I'm wondering how bad is it really?
    I never really wanted to do law in the first place, but since I started I decided to finish. I don't want a career in law either. I'm absolutely definite about this.

    Will I still have problems with getting a job that's not related to law? Do employers really pay attention to the 2:2? How much will this really affect my chances in let's say the media industry?

    Don't you know anything less than a first from Oxbridge isn't worth having?

    I know the feeling it is a boring subject to study.

    They study at Sunderland. They're just kidding.

    As for the value of a 2:2. It's not great, no. Most grad schemes won't consider you, but many will and with a good bit of beforehand experience you will have a few successful applications.
