    So I got 3As during A Levels but suffered with depression and anxiety throughout uni.

    I went to Newcastle uni for 3 years and graduated with a HND in Engineering. - Stayed in my room A LOT, missing lectured, not eating properly, missing going out with friends and a whole host of issues.

    When I graduated in 2016, I decided to go to a *****y uni to do a top up degree to turn my HND to a BEng... Still depressed af and I graduated with a third


    In hindsight, I should have take a gap year and went to therapy for then gone back but thats too late.


    So what I'm hoping to do now is to go to a uni in London apply for a BEng Top up course so that I can turn my HND into a 2:1 degree as I can't get a decent job with a third class degree.

    Would this be possible/advisable?

    Any advice is appreciated.

    I don't think you can just top up grades really but unis may be able to advise so contact them and ask. They may want you to start again.

    So you've got a 3rd in a BEng? I would be surprised to hear if any unis offer any way to increase this. Have you had any success with jobs since you graduated?
