    I just got my grades back, and my life of academic mediocrity continues.

    Or: 67, 56.5, 57, 50.

    I averaged a low 2:1, lots of low 60s. I improved year upon year though, to eventually get a first class degree. Most people experience a similar thing, I know very few people whose marks actually decreased as they progressed through their degree.

    I think it my first year I averaged 58.5, which is a 2:2 overall.

    To be honest, I was rather impressed with that at the time considering the utter half arsed approach I took. Fine for first year, not so great in additional years.

    Pretty ****. Core units suck, which is why I rarely turned up and failed two of them.

    I know how that feels... common programme modules just sapped my enthusiasm. The only way you can do it is to just crack on and keep your head down.

    One 1st, Four 2:i's, Four 2:ii's, and One 3rd.

    Got a 2:ii overall.

    Kinda disappointed but didn't expect to do much better. Most of my exams went terrible.

    Yep. The problem is that in your first year of uni - if you've not had a gap year - you've just come out of the 'doing what you had to' in high school and your head is full of expectations of finally only 'doing what you want to/choose to do' at uni. If they had the core units evenly spread out over the years rather than the majority squished into first year, I would have done much better.

    Mind you, if I wasn't such a lazy **** I also would have done much better.

    Thanks! :awesome: I've taken the "start as you mean to go on" approach. I'm a mature student, though, so the prospect of going out on the piss every night really didn't ever enter my head. I only got the results I did (86% avg.) because I'd literally devoted the last 7/8 months to my degree.

    I've witnessed the price of failure in my first attempt at a degree and paid the price for it, so I was determined to not make the same mistake twice, plus the generous scholarship that I'll be awarded because of my results, too.
    So there's those two carrots on sticks. But another thing I wanted to do was to prove to the academic snobs on here that A-Level grades mean jack ****. I tire of their endless snobbery about which Oxbridge college they're going to, how AAB is a **** A-Level result and how all ex-polys need razing. If I continue along the same path as I have been doing so far, I'll have proved that quite nicely.
