if the module leader agrees, and ta agrees and you've complained then it seems like the uni thinks your complaint/disagreement is unfounded and therefore I doubt there's much you can do.
Why do you think your grade is wrong?
Is their an appeal system?

Sounds like you just have to accept it at this point though, ngl

Do you have any grounds for complaint? As above, if multiple people have confirmed your grade is appropriate, then they appear to have considered and then dismissed your complaint, as opposed to not doing anything.

If you've followed the university appeals procedure and they've stood by the grade, there's not much more you can do. Why don't you agree with it? And why do the module leader/teaching assistant agree with it?

Does your university have a policy where it can deduct marks based on attendance?

Have you appealed it through the appeals procedure?

Nothing, you can't appeal academic judgement in the UK. You can't appeal based on disagreeing with the judgement an academic made about the content of your work. If it has been assessed by two people, then there's certainly no chance.

All you can do is complain about process, in which case you would have to show some procedural unfairness, like you had been told to submit days before the rest of the course, or that only the first two pages of your text were marked.

Otherwise, just learn from it, listen to the reason why you got that grade and do it differently next time.

It doesn't look like there's anything you can do, the above advice is really good. Best thing is take on board the feedback and apply it to the next assignment and use it part of the learning curve

do you have poor attendance in all your modules?

are your assignments marked anonymously?

did you check the university's website for under what grounds you can appeal? at least at my uni you can't appeal just cuz you disagree with the mark.

btw i moved your thread to the relevant forum

i could be wrong but i thought most employers don't look that deep into the specifics of your degree. the course title and the final grade are usually the most important right? also as an aside, can i ask what reason they gave for your low mark? depending on the reason they marked you down, there might be something you can do.
