Firstly let’s put it this 2.1/2.2 divide in context. A large part of it is an employer ego thing. Very few graduate recruiters will admit to seeking out graduates with a 2.2 degree – the SHAME of it all – having to resort to graduates with a 2.2. Well get over yourselves employers. We know that they do take graduates with 2.2 degrees but they make them work a little bit harder for it. So if you end up with a 2.2 and are feeling like your job prospects have just got very bleak (often over 1 or 2 measly % ) read on for some hope.
