Good evening,

I graduated with a second class lower division 7 years ago and trust me it wasn't easy. Most of the job adverts in Multinational companies were for first class and second class upper division graduates only.

I had to work in a startup to learn the ropes while I studied for my masters degree. The two things that kept me going were God's mercies and the fact that I knew I'm not a dullard. I might not be a first class material but I narrowly missed upper division because some lecturers decided to punish me with missing grades on three occasions.

Long story short, I'm now in a better place and considering the calibre of people I have met and my achievements both in Nigeria and abroad, I sometimes feel like I'm dreaming.

However, please do what you can to get good grades in school. My brother made a first class and was immediately recruited to one of the big four. Then again, what sets you apart is what's within.

Regards,

PalmTree

I am no 2 2 graduate but I know 2 2 graduate that got jobs even in multinationals. Build on your skills, learn how to do something differently. Gain experience, volunteer, keep pushing, get a master's degree. One day sometime, it will happen. In a short time, I know many companies will change their recruitment requirements because these days it not about how intelligent you are anymore. It's about what one can do differently. Ernst an young are already doing it. 2 2 is the minimum of them now. I know many companies will follow.

I'm a 2.2 graduate too, I narrowly escaped dropping to 3rd class in my final year; I was that terrible in school.
After 4 solid years of futile search for a job, lady luck eventually smiled at me at the least expected place and the least expected platform. It was all God's doing.

@op I bet your brain feels as good as new cuz it seems you have never used it. Graduating with 2:2 doesn't mean you are dumb. Sometimes it's just lecturers frustrating you or one thing or the other

A time will come that companies will not look at that paper but what you can offer.

I'm into freelancing and I know how much I make in a month. I didn't learn what am doing now in school okay. So receive sense

Thanks for sharing this. Will you mind if I add your name to the post?

My direct cousin graduated with 3rd class.
He simply went into Hair dressing, styling nd makeup.
He learnt this from some professionals.

Today, he is an employer of Labour, he has two salons.
And he now goes abroad to buy all this expensive, wigs, hair weavons nd hair extensions at wholesale, then sale at retail in his Salons.
He started from scratch, he usually goes to various places, looking for customers, at a time.

Education and Knowledge/skill are two different things, though I'm in the academic line and career, but sometimes I feel that Education is overrated.

On a personal note, I didn't graduate with my choice degree class, not as if I wasn't good enough for it, but just a "C" instead of an "A" in a 4 unit course can change your whole result.

Just a missing script can make you write Carryover, and drag your whole result down angry

Maybe others sorted the Lecturer, you didn't, so he gave you an E, instead of a B which was your original score..

But my advise is this, if you are not business oriented and you don't have any other good ideas on how to make money, please make sure you graduate with atleast a Second class UPPER.

Not as if there is automatic employment waiting for you, No, but at least you can be ELIGIBLE for application to many Companies.
You can also do Masters degree directly

Whether you can get a Job in the shortest possible time, is story for another day.

To be honest with you, that class stuff doesn't work.
I quote Jack Ma (Alibaba Founder):

I told my son: you don’t need to be in the top three in your class, being in the middle is fine, so long as your grades aren’t too bad. Only this kind of person [a middle-of-the-road student] has enough free time to learn other skills. I think, if China’s economy wants to develop, it needs a lot of SMEs and individually-run companies, and that requires a lot of entrepreneurs with values and drive.

Just know what you are doing, get more qualifications to supplement what you have.
