Need more help on going postgrad?
My tutor once told me (while I was applying for my masters programmes) that some universities won’t even consider applications that are below the required degree classification (e.g. 2:1).
If you end up with a 2:1, then it doesn’t really matter whether it’s “high” or “low” 2:1 so long as it’s a 2:1. Sometimes universities ask for a certain mark (e.g. conditional offer for a masters programme asks that you get minimum 65% degree average), which in that case you may need to worry.
Best to call the schools you’re interested in and check what their policies are for admissions and degree classification requirements (aka are they looking for a certain subset of 2:1 classifications or are all 2:1s welcome)
Bottom line is a 2:1 is a 2:1, and unless they state higher than 65, for exmple, then you at least have a chance
