2.1 as well. Its was a 4 years undergraduate masters degree too (dunno if u heard of them? Usually people do the masters part separately with other degrees).
Yeah. My best friend did a Physics course like that. He's now bagged a job at BAE Detica, and is undergoing security clearance. It's a programming role, and his only knowledge of programming is a Java module he did in his first year, and nothing on again since.
It just seems unfair.
yeah but maybe that role requires a lot of problem solving and needs someone who has good skills in numbers and science. So it won't just be a single module that got him the job lol.
What kind of career are you looking for?
It sucks that the government just raised tuition fees from £3400 to £9000 a year. Otherwise I might have considered going back to university and doing MPharm or a Bsc Hons in Optometry.

I'm graduating in BA Arts & Media this year, should be 2:1 or 1st but my employment prospects are basically the degree to which I'm prepared to get screwed into doing underpaid or free work, unless there's a slim chance I can find someone that has more than £30 to make a Website.
If you can't find a good job related to your degree then you could always apply for other graduate schemes. There are loads in business and finance that just require a 2.1 degree in any subject. When I went for an accounting graduate role a girl there was doing a degree in classics lol. What matters most is your ability to answer competency questions and being a great communicator to be successful in tests such as role play, group meetings and all those other things they like to test graduates on.
