Hi, maybe someone was in similar situation so I just want to ask for advice.

I graduated with 2:1 degree and currently studying MSc subject doing good having couple of 70+ modules, however, I just want to ask in advance as it is not going easy, is there a still a chance of getting a grad job let's say if you fail dissertation only but having good degree and good msc grades for modules too? Some employers look only for 2:1 degrees only, so can it have an impact in case of dissertation fail if it happens but good marks and degree overall?

Thanks!

Depending on your field, some grad schemes do not require a higher qualification than a BSc/BA. If you fail you dissertation, you can enquire about resitting it or exiting with a PgDip (which is a qualification that gives credit for the modules you've passed in Semesters 1 and 2).

Thanks for reply, yes I am sure that 99% of grad schemes need only 2:1) But let's say I have an AC now I will get a job now but they will see that I failed dissertation in my MSc can this change an employer mind even though I have 2:1 ? That's what I am afraid of. Thanks!

I would imagine that would only make a big difference if the dissertation was related to the grad scheme, or if they only consider the most recent qualification you've done as important.

Oh that makes sense now thanks, but what if that program provides you with another Msc in different university as a bonus, would it have an impact in your opinion?, but obviously job contract would be signed before any result of dissertation

Does the grad scheme will provide you with an MSc? It's not clear what you mean.

If they are providing a MSc, they may ask you why you didn't complete the full masters qualification. So be prepared in case that question comes up along the way.
