    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).

    :( AH

    PS Going to go and get drunk now.

    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.

    not to rain on that idea too much but universities will only take postgrad students with at least a 2:1...

    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!
