    Well guys it's been a heck of a long time since I posted on here. So I started a Biomedical Science degree in 2012 and graduated this May (I'm in Scotland where degrees are 4 years long). I really f***ed about for pretty much all my time at uni and in the end only achieved a 2.2, although considering how little effort I actually put in I think even this is an achievement. Luckily I've managed to get into a related Masters, which I am currently studying.

    What I am wondering is if performing well in this course will redeem my poor performance in the Honours degree? Will employers be willing to forgive my poor honours result if I get a decent grade for this Masters? Or am I blighted forever because of the 2.2? Also do any companies do Postgraduate schemes, similar to graduate schemes for Honours graduates?

    Thanks for reading and all help and advice is appreciated

    Not really no. It will help in terms of showing that you're capable of better but if there are minimum requirements for places then you have to meet them.

    So I'm pretty much screwed then when it comes to places that require at least a 2:1?

    What would be the relevance of his 2:2 bachelor degree if he was applying for a position which required a masters?

    I would have thought your degree classification compared to your masters classification is like comparing your A-level grades to your degree classification?

    Surely your employer is most interested in the latter, higher qualification?
