Ken’s Answer

Hi Caitlin!


The answer depends upon what you really want to do and what you are best suited for. Some careers require more years of school than others. Some require less. Just because a career requires fewer years of school does not mean it is less important or pays less or is less satisfying than one that requires more schooling.


Send thank you notes to those who help you. Please keep me posted. I would like to follow your progress.


Thank you, Ken! Caitlin B.

There is no breakdown available to show how degree classification impacts on a graduate's salary. However, lower degree grades do correlate with higher unemployment rates. While 1.7% of those who graduated in 2008 with a first class are unemployed, the same figure stands at 7.7% for those who got a third.


"An employer, who wants to recruit people with a high level of intellect, may have received 20,000 applications. You'll find that they look not only at degree classifications but also at Ucas points," says Isherwood.


"Most employers expect a minimum of a 2.1 degree," adds Antonia Clark, a careers consultant at City University London. "But they're also looking for applicants with self-confidence and self-awareness. They want graduates with good communication skills, numeracy and commercial awareness. It's not just about grades, but also about how you come across at interview."

Yes! The unemployment rate for people with only a high school education is more than 3 times higher than for people with a college education. And college graduates earn more than 60% more than people with only a high school education.
