Last year I graduated from a University with a lower seconds degree. Despite being 0.1 percent off a 2(i) I did not achieve this. I was very ill during my degree and even some of my teachers have appluaded that I did not intercalate. However, I was wondering, because my academic grade is so low, will this hinder me in the job market? If so, how can I counteract this? I am partaking in extra curricular activities in my current PGCE placement and learn well from other teachers and staff. I learn from my mistakes and impliment changes into the lesson. I am no longer ill but I do feel this shadow of a 2(ii) is hanging over me slightly.
