    Employers are employing YOU and not your university.

    So a first from TVU please.

    third from cambridge. my dad went to cambridge and got a 3rd so it would be carrying on the tradition. plus all the general public care about is where you went, not your degree class.
    not that it matters to me, vet degrees arent ranked in that way

    A 2:2 at the University of Nottingham purely because I think its the only uni out of those on that list that I would be happy with.

    A third from Cambridge. At least you can still say "Oh yes and I went to Cambridge" and raise your eyebrow elegantly.
    A First from Thames Valley is worth little more than the certificate it's printed on.

    People who get thirds from Cambridge don't deserve to be there.

    To have got into Cambridge you would have had pretty impressive A levels in the first place so you'd still have 3 A's to fall back on and apply to another Uni and do another degree/masters or something lol

    It's what degree you would like not 'if you really had to choose a university and were guaranteed one of these degrees, which one would it be?'

    First from TVU, It shows your tha ************ who woops everyone elses ass including the third from cambridge.

    Anything below a 2:1 is just too average for me.

    A third from Cambridge isn't going to get you far. Getting a third is very easy and is definitely NOT an acheivement to feel good about.

    Nottingham. Decent uni and decent degree class.

    The other options are either 'questionable uni' or 'questionable degree class'.
