    Similarly to how GCSE’s become slightly irrelevant after getting into sixth form / college, does an undergraduate degree become less important if you go on to obtain postgraduate degrees?

    Unfortunately not. Also GCSEs may be asked for my employers too.

    As important. The only thing that would seriously lessen a first degree is another first degree or experience. The first is very expensive and the second is going to be hard to come by without having got the decent degree to get your foot in the door. Some people manage it, but it is very unforgiving. Once you are in an organisation then they dont care as long as you can do the job.
