Thanks for all your comments. After spending a very unrewarding six months as a global studies assistant and trying a completely different career I have finally decided to do a post-grad diploma in Nursing. Having worked part time during my degree as a nursing assistant I have chosen to pursue this further. It will also help later on if i do decide to pursue a masters as well as a fullfilling career. Thanks for all the advice, your comments all proved that a 3rd isn't all that bad.

I have looked at a lot of masters courses and most want at least a 2:2 or higher. After talking to course tutors on courses i have been interested in, it is difficult to get on to Masters without a 2:2 but not impossible, there are post grad diplomas that lead to masters or a lot of work experience and committment can persuade admissions of your merit too. However think carefully. Quite a number of my friends have done masters and have said that if you struggle with your degree, the masters is alot harder than a degree.

I got on to my degree having done half a Nursing diploma and a foundation year that included Alevel maths, It would seem only education courses are specific about GCSE maths, most degrees see Alevel as more than equivalent.

I think i'll research the PGCE further as this has interested me for a while, (i do alot of youth work). Thanks guys

to be fair, i partly agree that diving into a post grad course would just be postsponing the inevitable job. Theoretically i love bioscience its facinating but practically its not as exciting to me.

I have considered/looked in to teaching. i don't have my GCSE in maths tho and the PGCE requires a 2:2 or higher.

These are all partly true. I've been trying for quite a long time to research into my career. I've looked at courses,careers advice centres web pages and quite frankly feel as tho i've come to a dead end. I have always been interested in medicine but am not academically up to it. I've tried nursing. But didnt enjoy that. I now have a degree but have no idea where to go next, Accountancy isn't my thing as i suck at maths

I have thought of a masters but i do feel that i should really decide on a career before i jump head first in to a considerable debt. At the moment i couldn't afford the fees let alone the living costs. Plus it was the Lab skills that let me down, not really one of my strengths as it turned out.

I'm 26 and recently have finished with a third class honours in Human Biosciences. I recently had a job in admin in pharmaceuticals and hated it. it was little more than data entry. I really don't know what to do next as i consulted Prospects and they basically said i couldn't hope for better than the job i had. Is further study or grad schemes possible? At the moment my degree seems a big waste of time and money.
