I looked at the FAQ's for graduating degree by class in the recent few years on the QM Maths website and less than 30% graduate with a 2:1 or more. What do you think of this?

I think its because of the low entry requirements, and a below par Mathematics department.

Interesting. I reckon you're one of those people who gets off to league tables and all that nonsense. Given that QMUL was ranked as 11th in the most recent league table, I can't exactly see how it's "****".

No, not really. As a prospective Law applicant you at least ought to know that the Law dept is one of the best in the country. Same goes for Medicine/Dentistry/English and so on.

Don't be funny with me. I haven't seen a source to confirm that, and even if it is true, that doesn't necessarily mean the entire university is crap.

Depends what, and compared to. Fair enough it's not as good as Oxford, but then again it's probably better than Brunel. But **** this ranking ****, come and visit, see if you like the course structure and make your mind up.

that doesn't mean QM is bad as a department, perhaps it means that as the entry requirements may be lower, the students are generally less capable/motivated.

QM is a great university for history, politics, medicine, law, english and many other subjects. In fact, I would say that for history, law and medicine, it is no lesser than the UCL, etc. The East End thing really sucks, as it isn't a bad place to be at all, but snobbs don't care about that, do they.

Well perhaps you could take into account that Maths isn't Queen Mary's strong point and also how much can you do with a Maths degree?

Everything, coincidently. Probably the best degree one can do.

Are you havin' a bubble mate?

Teaching at ALL levels, working in ANY job that requires numerical skills and ANY job that requires a strong academical background. These alone cover the majority of jobs you can get employed in.

Sure, Mathematics is not a specialised degree but it is one of THE most academical subjects and employers love academics.
