    This is probably the wrong place to ask, but I could not find a better place. When filling out forms, specifically higher education, what do I (having obtained a PhD) write under "Grade achieved" when the only choices are
    • First Class
    • Upper Second Class
    • Lower Second Class
    • Third Class
    • Ordinary
    • Postgraduate Distinction
    • Postgraduate Commendation
    • Postgraduate Merit
    • Postgraduate Pass
    • To Be Notified
    • Aegrotat
    • Failed
    • Unclassified
    • Other
    I thought it to be 'other', but it seems strange.

    Cheers.

    Put Other or Postgraduate Pass, and note the employer is likely to be a pompous twonk to work for- they ask for information they don't seem to understand!

    I wrote 'other'. Its far from perfect, but the others are just plane wrong.

    Ironically, it's a University:facepalm:, I guess they should know better but oh well.

    Cheers all.
