    I've just gained a third class honours degree through the OU. Someone made horrible remarks about my classification. They said it's a useless classification and I will never get anywhere further in life with it. I felt so disheartened.

    It's not entirely true, I know people who got third class degrees that still ended up as managers in various companies.
