Congrats Fod, best of luck with your career!
Congrats fella, well done
I saw that this morning and laughed too.
Well done fod, and may i just say my little piece.
bEng Marine Technology Hons Offshore Engineering - 2-1 !!!!!
Its off to work in Dubai for me!!
Exactly, on the other hand I found uni to be the exact opposite of everything yu mentioned. But each experince is different.
Well done to those who graduated.
So that's what they call fishing these days?
I got a 2.2 in CS with Artificial Intelligence. So ridiculously disappointed. I was borderline because of my bloomin' second year (only got 50% because I didn't do any work), but I did really well this year, just didn't do quite enough to make up for second year. I'm so frustrated right now, feel like ****. Can everyone please give me lots of encouragement. Doing a masters so hopefully I'll actually be able to get a job when I try (one of my friends graduated with a 2.2 in Computer Science last year and literally has not been able to find a job).
PS Going to go and get drunk now.
Good lad. Best idea really.
btw, congrats fod!
Naaaa Fishing is the Marine Biology degree
Hehe. i think its all just sunk in! i am rather happy at the moment.
A 2.2 is pretty damn good, not may employers care about what level of degree you have according to a couple of people I know who deal with recruitment. Once you have the degree, it'll come down to what you're like and experience, it will very rarely be a shootoff of who has the higher grade when two people are competing for a job.
Of course it really depends on the company.
You could always try for a PhD mate, that'd certainly make up.
Don't worry about it, the actual degree is only a part of university.
I am now GuardianStorm bachelor of Science in Systems Engineering
Must be nice actually knowing what you want to go to college for
I'll figure it out someday...hopefully.
not to rain on that idea too much but universities will only take postgrad students with at least a 2:1...
congrates, but now is the real hard part, try getting a job.
I've got my ordinary degree in Electronics & Electrical Engineering (ie I passed third year). Only 2 more years and I can get my masters.
Congrats to everyone who has finished entirely.
For everyone graduating now - congrats. How comes the hard work! A degree is just the starting point. 50% of what you've learnt is useless. The trick is knowing which 50%.. Doing a masters is exactly the right thing mate. The more you can learn and the more practical experience you can get, you more you understand what knowledge is valuable & the better your job prospects..
and for everyone starting a degree - learn from ArtificalHero - don't take a holiday half way through!
