This time last year I was distraught, I had reciviced my exam results and found that I had got a 2:2 for my second year. I was so upset, there'd be no grad jobs for me if I graduated with a 2:2. I frantically searched to find any success stories but only found a few.

But now I'm graduating with 2:1 I bloody did it , so anyone who has any questions ask away I'm happy to give any advice.

2:1 is good = well done

Firstly you need to believe in yourself aim for first in everything, in my second year I'd just aim for a 2:1 which meant that I mostly achieved 2:2s for everything.

Secondly organise your time effectively, every second counts,I spent everyday going over my work in the library so I wasn't ever behind. You can't do this if your not organised.

Thirdly ask your lecturers for help if you don't understand anything this is important. They are there to help go to see them in there office hours no question is silly.

How hard is it to get a 2:1 if you study from the start? Also was your course very maths based?

Why did you pick a joint honours with a course you had not studied before? Did you apply for ecomics and politics everywhere else?

see your lectures regularly, ask them how can you get a first or 100 per cent.If your doing an essay based subject like me I think it's important you learn how to structure your work properly once you know that everything becomes easier

Be organised set yourself a target each week so you can keep on top of everything.

Make sure you sleep and take care of your health.

Thank you :hugs:

I will be studying International Relations and Strategy and International Security with Japanese. Close enough to politics, I think

Speaking of politics, what books do you recommend?

Forget to say what not to do.


Don't leave everything to the last minute

Don't aim for a 2:1 because then there's a chance you could get a 2:2

Only hand in work or go to an exam when you know you revised/prepared to thr best of your ability.

If you have a part time job and it's getting in the way quit, they ain't gonna do much for you in the long run.

Don't cram or do all nighters they don't work
