Employers want strong academic qualifications, so if you expect a 1st/2:1 it is wise to mention it on your CV.

02

Mention a few relevant modules. Two-four are enough.

03

If you did A-Level equivalents make sure it is clearly mentioned on your CV.

04

We advise students to start their sentences with positive action words that demonstrate what they did and how they did it. The student here has opted to start by describing the skills he developed before expanding on how has done so. This demonstrates that there is no one correct way to write a CV. It is, however, important to substantiate and expand on the skills gained the achievement.

As mentioned previously, another effective way to expand on this skills would be: received clients’ calls, scheduled appointments for them and familiarised them with their duties and rights. By explaining your experience like this it is implied that you developed your communication and interpersonal skills.
