As many people have said, you have a degree and that's something many people haven't. Secondly, you've demonstrated that you can stick a period of study and achieve - that's another thing. You will have a host of transferable skills from your course that employers want - there's another thing. And always remember that many professions require extra training so there is ample opportunity to progress further. I know of University professors who got a 2.2!

The late Michael Podro got a 2:2

"Michael Podro was one of Britain's leading art theorists, a critic and philosopher who developed a highly independent position as a teacher and person of influence in the field of aesthetics at Essex University, where he helped build up the Department of Art History and Theory.

Born in 1931, Podro read English at Jesus College, Cambridge, where he was much influenced by the ideas of F.R. Leavis and the traditional interest of the Cambridge English tripos in the history of ideas. Much to his disappointment, he only got a 2.2 in both parts of the tripos. "

Do a masters and you effectively raise your BSc by a grade according to research councils and universities

i graduated last friday, with a 2.2 in Physics. i'm still over the moon that i actually passed - uni was not something i enjoyed much towards the end, so i'm chuffed that i got there! also, at the ceremony i discovered that the 2 other people graduating with 2.2's in physics along with me were 2 guys who i felt sure would have got firsts or 2.1's, so that made me feel a lot better. in the future i may wish i'd worked that bit harder & done a bit better, but for now, my 2.2 will do me just fine!

Sad.
I guess that she did not have the intellectual resources to cope.
She should not have wasted 3 years of her life of university.

because she got a low grade with her degree doesn't mean she shouldn't of gone, maybe she's feeling proud that she has her degree, sounds a bit mean

In what sense is going to university and achieving a Third a 'waste'?
