I got a 2:1 in my bachelor's degree, that's my degree classification. I've not done any work experience yet, I'll get a chance in my masters

I half expected it like my second year wasn't perfect as I was forced to travel in to uni so had barely any free time to study. Living on campus definitely helps in third year which saw my average go up by 11% plus I was regularly going out drinking this year. I basically scraped a 2:1 but it took a lot of work. I was just happy and relieved that my bachelor's is all over on graduation. Quite happy but I thought graduation was exhausting as I had to travel far and I didn't sleep well the day before

Hey, thank you! Nice, that's really good, good luck to you first! I found that first and second year modules are mostly chosen for you with a little bit more freedom in second year but it's good in a way as compulsory modules will help you find out what you enjoy but in third year you get a lot more freedom and everything is optional so you choose any modules you like and dissertation is always fun! No, I've just done 3 years! In my first and second year I travelled in by train which was a bloody nightmare as I'd often miss lectures, be late to lectures and I once missed a test that counted to 10% of a module so I wouldn't recommend travelling in and it was about 50 minutes and trains were at 49 past each hour so if I finished at 4 I wouldn't be home til 5:45pm! Thanks again and feel free to message me if you want some advice about uni! Sheffield is a Russell Group uni so you'll be in good hands!
