But are employers really interested in this level of detail? Who cares if I got 63% in electromagnetism in second year? Surely they are not looking just for aptitude in exams, but adaptability and common sense in new situations. And how are they going to judge extra curricular activites, when some wont be anything to do with the university?
I graduated with a degree in Biology in 1999 and went on to become a lawyer. Even then law firms were requesting full transcripts of results (even when your degree did not relate to the area!) because too many people applying for law had a 2.1 or 1.
I guess what I am trying to say is this is nothing new!
