Why did you put the unfortunate on quote? Unfortunate in the sense that you are marked down or what?

l dont want to go into this controversial issue.

There is hope for you, if you believe in urself and not on the paper qualification!!

If u have third class , you have to try and get ur work experience going so that hopefully you will meet an employer that values experience oer qualifications.

Finally try to get probably a Masters or PGD.

All the best

Let me firstly remind you that it is the Lord that shows mercy (favour). It really does not matter what the circumstances are. Sometimes situations as this (having a 3rd class) definetely will make one to trust in God the more and the word of God assures that with God nothing shall be impossible.

And again, you should know that the Bible says that the righteous shall live by faith. It well with our souls, even with those that have 3rd class.

Pray and put your trust in God for He alone can divinely visit you.

Once again, it is well!

life is what you make it. . .

while a lot of people get thirds bcause they played their way thru school, its not always the case. the nigerian educational system, what with incompetent, lacvicious lecturers who expect you to execute a mental 'copy and paste' is no true marker of peoples academic ability.

that aide, i know three diff peeps who rinished ith thirds who are doing very well now.

one was my frind in school. dude read microbio, was plenty serious ,but even so. .third. during NYSC , jhe went full scale into java programming, got sun certifications, got a job with small firm. plenty of hard times, even some disappointments( he completed an it interview marathon with uba/stb before the third issue came up. they couldnt believe he had a third- but they didnt give him the job. 2day, he is self employed and pulling down plenty doe.

another - my classmate who WAS unserious. IMHO , anyway. after nysc, she did cisco cert, eventually got a job with a phone company whose nme i forget. MTN acquired the co, she was retained - 300% salary increase - enter the big girl. . .

IMHO, life is what you make it. the same applies to peeps with 2'2s .there are even plenty of fellas with 2'1s still looking for work. .

everything comes to he who hustels while he waits. as long as you focus on developing valauble skills, you will get a good job . it may not be immediate - but what the heck. . .we all need to go through the fire. . .what would life be if it were a mere bed of roses?

Life and death is in the power of the tongue. Remember that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.

Be positive because with God All things are possible.

(i) John Prescot  studied economics after he left royal army and came out with 2:2 and was the deputy prime minister of Britain for good lovely ten years.

(ii) Bill Gate a drop out now the second richest on Earth.

(iii) My cousin B Dada, came out with a 3rd got to UK in the late 90s and got merit in Masters, did CeMap, ACCA and now have asset worth of £700,000.

(iv) Tony Blair 2:1
(v) My boss a college graduate but full of experience, he's the Financial Controller.

(VI) Myself a 2:2 graduate and i believe im better than some who got 1st or 2:1. Believe in yourself.

Now my friend, sometimes  circumstances, problems of different kinds in life could lead to students acheiving less grades such a third or pass not that they are not clever or hardworking although some students could be generally unserious.

The bottom line is your hope is in God's hand, after all our past Presidents didn't even smell the gate of a university and they ruled us.

Faith without works is dead. If you believe dat God can make a way out for u, the next step is to take practical steps toward improving urself, such dat would make u look 'attractive' to employers.  I suggest u do a post graduate diploma and then a masters' degree program to boost ur chances. Professional qualifications can be a catalyst too.

Do something and stop crying over spilled milk

@kazan, men there is serious hope , a 1st degree doesnt mean u would live a 1st class life and a 3rd class degree doesnt mean u'd live a 3rd class life.all u need do is dust urself up and give life ur best shot.the life u eventually would live is all in ur head and not in a degree.
really dig what skyone wrote cos with or without a degree yo can make the best of life, its all in wht u accept and wht you dont bro.

i have 2 friends who came out with a third class. One works with a bank. She got the job 6months after nysc, the second one works with total ,he scored the highest in their aptitude test and perdformed well in their interview. There were a lot of other people with 2-1's that wrote the same test that i know and they were not even taken.

Third Class, SO WHAT
Whatever your grade in organised school system shouldn't determine who you become.
The Nigerian education situation, mostly does not reveal the real you - and you have to prove it otherwise.
With a firm believe in your abilities and dedication to success, you'll chart a brighter future.
SEE YOU AT THE TOP!!!

Dude, while you sit back asking if there is any hope for you because you made a 3rd class, life is passing you by. Dont be bothered by what you made, but look for ways to 'wipe' that off your slate.
There are numerous certification exams you can take, which most multinational companies will rather accept, over your BSc or BA degree. there is Prince2 or PMP for project managers, Cisco exams (CCNA CCIE CC** etc) for those who are computer oriented and a host of others.
I know people who came out of school with even worse degree's but are making it today, either on their own or employed by companies.
Apart from that, we often talk about the high and mighty in the world and many of them do not even have degrees - Bill Gates, Richard Branson, and even our own Dangote (i have never known anyone to say he has a degree but i may be wrong).
Just think positive, my friend, and work towards something greater,

Shut the fu/ck up!!LIAR
3rd class works in TOTAL? you are having a laff or you are either cooking your response up!
Unless your friend knows someone there who has given him the job not on merit but on personal recognition, then there is no way he can do a graduate job in TOTAL with a 3rd class, absolutely load of ruffle rubbish from u!
No disrespect u can work in TOTAL with a 3rd class but what you do and level of responsibility depends ( You could be  a gaurd, cook, driver, engineering assistants and logistics personnel) and i certainly don't agree your friend does a job above graduate level qualification with a 3RD CLASS unless na "connection"

YOU CAN PROVE IT TO US ALL


@Poster
My guy, with your 3RD CLASS, you can still go all the way, just rack up more qualifications and keep working hard picking up any work experience chances here and there
Not all the 1st class or 2nd class graduates earned, deserved and succeed with it believe me!

Roll call: Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka did n't make a first call nor 2.1 or even 2.2, learnt he made a 3rd class,
Human Rights lawyer Gani Fawehinmi did the same result in school but today these men today cannot but be mentioned in our daily lives as men who have affected lives , made names for themselves and most importantly, be the best at what they are doing. So cheer up, take the initiative develop yourself and don't let the 3rd class stigma live with you.

While u r busy moaning over your circumstances, the world is passing you by. I would have thought that finding your self in this situation would act more like a catalyst than any thing else. Wake up! U r what you make your self. If you believe u have no hope, then there is really no hope for you. Challenge your self into becoming something. If you had told us your discipline it would have helped us in tailoring our advice to suit you adequately. But the basic point is this, further your education. To get a masters you might have to do a Post Graduate Diploma first. Go for it! You don't have all the time. Find out what certifications are relevant to your field and start reading for them. The clock is ticking guy,
