    Hey All,

    Almost every graduate job says they want at least 'a 2.1 in any discipline', or some variance.

    Okey, but some degrees are far more practical than others. For example a degree in Engineering or Law

    What do you do if you've studied something less tangible such as Social Sciences, English or Art (broadly speaking)?

    They want the skills which come with your degree, like communication if you've done presentations, teamwork if you've done group assignment, time management, etc. My friend was placed on a grad scheme for marketing and she studied zoology so it depends how much you can blag.
