    I got a 2:1, I would have been gutted if I got a 2:2. I suppose it depends on your personal goals and what you want to get into. I wanted to get into journalism which is competitive, most of the applicants would have 2:1s or 1sts, and as I went to an ex poly I felt I had to prove myself.

    I got onto a newspaper training scheme, there were 10 on the course. 9 of us had 2:1s or 1sts, the only one who had a 2:2 was the owner's son

    I can totally identify with this but at the same time I know people who have got onto journalism training courses with 2:2s and they weren't the owner's offspring. They've now been offered work with National papers. - I agree with what Kathryn said - it's the confidence and direction thing.
