Recently I found out that my summer exam results were lower than I expected. This has resulted in me getting a 2:2 overall in my degree. Its an Accounting related degree in Manchester if that makes a difference. It was always touch and go as to whether i’d get a 2:1 but im still a bit gutted about it. And it seems like every other person I know has got a 2:1.
So, to put it bluntly…Am I screwed?
I’ve been repeatedly told the importance of a 2:1 over the last 3 years. Any accounting firm i’ve ever looked at has had an entry requirement of a 2:1 to even apply. So what do I do? I know it sounds a little extreme, but I feel ever so slightly like I’ve wasted 3 years.
Is anyone else in the same boat? Or have any ideas as to what to do?
A friend suggested doing a Masters, as that would then be seen as the most relevant qualification. But I even need a 2:1 to get into most of them.
Any ideas/ views/ opinions are welcome!
