    I got a 2:1, which is alright even if it was a really low 2:1. I also failed a module which is really really bad, I don't have to resit though.

    Basically, I did no work all year. Generally a waste of thousands of pounds, and stress when I go back. Brill.

    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.
    Does your first year even count? Why did you feel the need to study 24/7 in your first year?

    No it didn't as far as my overall final degree award is concerned. It did count towards me getting a scholarship, though, and because I'll have an uphill struggle competing with other graduates in two years time, an excellent first year will look appealing on my transcript.

    Besides... start as you mean to go on.

    2:2, I look back now and realised that my writing style was shocking. Thats what your first year is all about learning from your mistakes. I got 2:1 in my second year, as long as you try hard you can always improve.

    What are you studying? I know for finance jobs a 2.1 is all that you need because work experience etc counts for a lot more than academics.

    How did you do in your first year at uni?
    Well, thankyou. Got three 2:1s and a 1st across my four papers, so averaged a 2:1 overall. Very happy!

    Got about 58% average and found that difficult to achieve tbh, but it isnt really that bad considering in one of our exams only about 1% of the year got a 1st and in another over a third of the year failed :s
