Ask Get In Education Consulting about Grades and Pursuing a Graduate Degree


A third class is not the end of an academic career or further education. Admissions committee look for value.

Imagine a candidate with a third class who has developed an initiative or built a company that has affected many lives. This applicant will probably be more attractive than a first class applicant who has not affected lives practically. This is just an example and is in no way bashing first class graduates.

The point is that not only grades perform the function of signaling value. You have to develop your profile to show you are valuable.

Value means different things. It could mean you wrote a book, won a competition, developed a product, fought for justice, fed the hungry, or launched a range of beauty products.

Don’t let a third class degree prevent you from dreaming!
