    I know someone who has. He spent a year as a HCA and got in second time around. You needed a well rounded application for grad entry - it's not all about degree class.

    First class degree is the least of anyone's worries.

    First-Class degree + 1 year as a HCA (who reflects obsessively on the experience)

    good idea?

    I know a few people. Interviews plays a fundamental role at many universities. A 1st class degree just helps one obtaining an interview place and thereafter it is more if not all about how you performed on that day.
