Any undergrad degree without honours (except in Scotland) is so vanishingly rare, that in England and Wales you have to be explicit if you mean a degree without honours.

By and large, in England and Wales, a degree without honours is next to useless and it won't get you onto a Masters programme. The situation in Scotland is different, you'd have to ask the specific university. However, the honours year is usually required to continue to postgrad.

There's not much more to say. If you don't do the honours year, your degree only really has currency in Scotland, because it only equates to completing the second year of uni in England and Wales. If you never want to move out of Scotland, or at least not until you've got an established career, you might get away with it.

But as far as I'm aware, you need to complete the honours year to go on to a Masters, even in Scotland. Ask your Scottish uni what their Masters entry requirements are.

You need honours to do masters. So few degrees are awarded without honours.
