First and foremost I am a 2.2 graduate. But from what I have seen so far, I have come to discover that job adverts specifically give preference to first class and 2.1 graduates and very few give room for 2.2 applicants. And I am yet to see any job specification that includes graduates of third class degree.

Now someone with a third class degree can only do masters after completion of a postgraduate diploma. However, job advertisements for lecturing positions still lay emphasis on minimum of 2.2 for lecturing positions. So a third class degree applicant who has masters and PhD still doesn't stand a chance as compared to first and 2.1 or 2.2 applicants.

So my question is, what is the way forward for third class graduates, should they abandon the degree and enrol for another first degree? Or universities should abolish the award of third class degrees to graduates.

In my own opinion, students who have poor grades that will eventually earn them a third class degree should be given some form of remedial programmes for a year or two which will attract additional fees so they can have opportunity to boost their grades and at least earn a 2.2 upon graduation. Just my opinion!

Please feel free to make your contributions as well. There are a lot of third class degree holders out there who are really frustrated and would want some advice on what to do!

God in heaven how did he achieved that

Apparently, his performance blossomed after he traveled abroad for his second degree in Finance and an MBA in Finance afterward - he performed poorly in Zoology which was his first degree

I am a third class degree holder. when I saw my final result, I went ahead to beg my course adviser to "please dash me one point so that I can be in the group of 2.2". But the word she gave me, made me to beat my chest that I will never give up.
She said to me, My dear, to be candid with you, you are a brilliant lady BUT the society we are now, do not require your certificate before getting a good job.
I took the words & plan for the future.
today, I'm a Civil Servant in one of the best state in Nigeria.
Same here. I secured a civil service job with my third class. I use to apply for any job advert I see, even when they say it's for 2.1 graduates and above. I'm always confident that I will beat those 2.1 applicants at the point of oral and written interview. I'm the only one that knows the cause of my graduating with 3rd class.

I graduated with a 3rd class in Mechanical Engineering and I must confess that it is somehow tough getting a job couple with the fact that the age grade for jobs is 26years with 2.1

I am currently doing my PGD in Info Tech where I think I can have an higher chance at nailing a bigger pay job.

But I have equipped myself with different certificates, so it comes handy as back up for my grade.

I pray I nail that big pay job because if hard work equals money, I should have been a Billionaire by now..

All in all, never give up and trust in God.

Cheers

where are you doing your pgd in Info Tech ?
